There's some really great insight into Tiger's ups and downs as a golfer and a bunch of wonky golf-speak about the minute details of Tiger's swing. But there's also a whole lot of gossipy tidbits that should get copies of this thing flying off the shelves. We read the book so you don't have to, and picked out the most important things we learned. Tiger's military obsession started with video games and boot camp documentaries. But it quickly escalated into something bigger and weirder. The books claims Tiger went on a three-day parachuting excursion, got shot with a rubber bullet, and employed a "weird" ex-military guy who claimed he could communicate with Tiger's dead father.
The duo would eventually split shortly after the Tiger Woods scandal broke. But at the end of the day what makes this book so remarkable is the insight it provides into the person that is Tiger Woods; a person so often veiled from the public as a result of his self-inflicted invisibility cloak. Before I dive in and give you a few juicy teasers, let me first address the critics of this book. If you read this book, it seems as though nothing could be farther from the truth. Double that. The picture that Haney paints of Tiger Woods is generally what I had always suspected, but much more severe.
While planning a title for this book review, my editors included the word "shocking"—as in, what I expected to find out about Tiger Woods while reading it. But that didn't turn out to be the case. So, we left it out because I really didn't find anything shocking about the book. It certainly would've welcomed more reads, but it also would've been extremely misleading. Or maybe that he wears a size medium golf shirt.
T here have been better books set in the world of golf than The Big Miss, Hank Haney's account of his time as Tiger Woods's swing coach the great Golf Digest writer Dan Jenkins used to knock out a minor classic every year or so , and there have arguably been better books about Tiger Woods Tom Callahan's His Father's Son, a hard-boiled biography of Earl Woods, is crammed with good old-school reporting and reveals a great deal about the golfer by examining the father who shaped his life. But there has never been a golf book as keenly anticipated or as energetically hyped. Woods has always been able to transport golf from the margins of popular consciousness into the mainstream, dragging along many in his starburst slipstream. Haney, who worked for the golfer for six years, was one of the many. A hitherto respected swing coach with a high profile in golfing circles, he became a notable and widely quotable figure on the broader sporting landscape after he started working with Woods in March And good value he was too. For as long as it lasted.
