Tiger's agent lashes out at Haney's Tell-All

Tiger Woods' agent lashed out at his client's former swing coach tell-all book, "The Big Miss, calling it "armchair psychology" and "ridiculous".

Hank Haney's book about his six years as Woods coach is titled, "The Big Miss" and goes on sale March 27, a week before the Masters.

Mark Steinberg, Woods' agent at Excel Sports Management, said in a statement that excerpts show Haney's claim of the book being about golf is ``clearly false.''

``His armchair psychology about Tiger, on matters he admits they didn't even discuss, is ridiculous,'' Steinberg said. ``Because of his father, it's no secret that Tiger has always had high respect for the military, so for Haney to twist that admiration into something negative is disrespectful.''

Woods is playing the next two weeks in south Florida, at the Honda Classic and Cadillac Championship at Doral, as he prepares for the Masters. Woods has not won at Augusta National since 2005.

``The disruptive timing of this book shows that Haney's self-promotion is more important to him than any other person or tournament,'' Steinberg said. ``What's been written violates the trust between a coach and player and someone also once considered a friend.''
