Harmon vs. Haney

June 20, 2004

Who is coaching Tiger Woods? Everyone knows it's not Butch
Harmon, though many believe Woods should give his former
instructor a call. Insiders say that though Tiger hasn't
officially hired a new coach, he has been working for several
months with Hank Haney, the longtime teacher of Woods's friend
Mark O'Meara. Here's the tale of the tape between Harmon and
