One day after Tiger Woods announced he had undergone another back surgery, his former coach Hank Haney chimed in on Woods’ recent issues.
Haney, who coached Woods from 2004-10, believes the 14-time major champion isn’t all that serious about making a return to the game.
“I don’t believe Tiger is that enthralled with this whole comeback idea,” Haney said on SiriusXM PGA Tour Radio. “I think that’s something people have wrong. That’s one of the biggest misconceptions I think, that he’s just snowed the media on. And even though they know, the media knows that when Tiger says something, you can’t take it for just what he said, because he’s not giving you everything. But they still believe that he's got this burning desire to come back and play. I don't think he does."
Haney, who hasn’t been shy about commenting on Woods since the pair split in 2010, believes the 41-year-old is still good enough to win on tour.
“I think if he does come back and he can play for an extended period of time, he will win another golf tournament because he’s just that good,” Haney said. “I’ll never give up on that part because that’s how good he is."
