Apparently, Sean Foley and Hank Haney are having a back and forth on Twitter.
The root word of the medium they are communicating through is applicable to both. Can these two be any more second grade? I know I sound like a hypocrite for as much criticism as I dole out to the gurus, but I am not engaged in a public “I know you are, but what am I,” debate.
I feel like this childish exchange pretty much proves the point I have been making about Foley, Haney and the other “experts” that have been corrupting our minds with their marketing schemes.
I find their war of words akin to monkeys throwing feces at each other in the zoo. Forgive the crude analogy, but when I think of big named gurus and their swing systems…feces is the first thing that comes to my mind.
I predicted that Tiger would struggle under Haney and not win any majors in 2009 and that he would get rid of Haney. He did something bad at all 4 majors that he had never done before in his career. Four different bad things. Bogeying the last two holes at Augusta when he had a chance to win. A bad back nine when in contention at the US Open. Missing the cut at The Open (his other missed cut in a major was when his dad died). Losing a final round lead at the PGA.
IMO, Tiger will struggle and struggle badly at the majors this year. Aside from St. Andrews, The Open is the major where Tiger has had the most problems in his career. By the time The Open Championship is over, so will Tiger’s relationship with Foley.
I do agree with both of them about one thing. They both said the other one is clueless and bad for Tiger.
