Rick Smith Wins Today


I'm not sure if you've noticed that I'm not a huge fan of that book Hank Haney is writing, but I'm not. I think it is complete bullshit and think anything like this, between a teacher and a player, is going against every man code, friend code, and professional code imaginable (honestly, who the hell was Hank Haney before Tiger Woods?).

So it is nice to see other instructors agreeing. Rick Smith, who used to coach Phil Mickelson, was asked about the Haney tell-all about Tiger, and said this startling but absolutely awesome quote.

Via ESPN ...

"I would rather be broke and not have a penny to my name before I violate the code of player-teacher confidentiality," Smith said. "In 27 years out here, I've never done that. I'm personally upset with Hank because he's broken and violated our code of ethics. If you have the opportunity and you're privileged to conversations, you will not and should not share anything from them with anyone. I don't care who it is. "For all the guys who have committed their lives to teaching, this should be very upsetting and I know that I'm not the only one that feels this way. What Hank did is against the rules."

I think that's what the people call a checkmate, Mr. Haney. Lay your king down and enjoy those blood checks. Actually, I'm positive you will.

There is no loyalty anymore, from coach to athlete, the LOYALTY is gone.These guys these days will do or tell anything for that 15 mins of fame or a dollar. In short men have become gossiping, snitching, money hungry whores! I hope Hank Haney feels the wraith of his girl telling and gets the cold shoulder from the Golf community.Oh and Tiger, we told you this would happen! (message from the people you don't claim)

I think that the biggest problem I have with it is that Hank is telling the stories that I might hope Tiger would tell when his golf career is all said and done. I think that I would like a book by Hank but this is not the approach.

Same with Joe Torre and the Yankees. I will not validate Joe nor Hank's violation of this code of ethics by buying these books. Who the hell cares what Haney thinks any way. He was damn lucky to have had the opportunity to teach one of the greats. And now, he's parlayed that into a lucrative teaching career and television career. He should basically kiss Tiger's behind every morning and night for the opportunity he was given.
