Tiger Woods' fascination with the Navy SEALs and how he might have incurred his leg injuries are sure to generate plenty of buzz when Hank Haney's book goes on sale next week. titleist Scotty Cameron Buttonback Putter
There also is plenty of gossip involving other players, such as the time Ian Poulter invited himself to ride home on Woods' plane after a practice round at Oakmont.
But there is a bigger picture in "The Big Miss," which chronicles the six years Haney spent as his swing coach.
"In Tiger's mind, satisfaction is the enemy of success," Haney writes.
The book goes on sale March 27 - one week before the Masters - and it already has been getting plenty of attention because of a few sections that raise questions about how Woods injured his leg.
He shows Woods to be a complicated person who sought change to keep stimulated, who was rarely satisfied, self-centered in his pursuit of greatness and whose titleist Scotty Cameron Buttonback Putter in the gym was geared toward being accepted as an athlete.
Haney cites Corey Carroll, one of Woods' closest friends at Isleworth, as saying that Woods injured his right Achilles tendon doing Olympic-style weightlifting as he returned from reconstructive knee surgery in December 2008.
Haney said that matched a story from Carroll, who said Woods revealed to him that the complete tear of his left knee ligaments really happened in a Kill House when he had lost his balance and been kicked in the knee.
Haney also tells of a woman who approached him during an outing in Minnesota last year. Her husband was a Navy SEAL in California and told her Woods came in for training in 2007 at a Kill House - an urban-warfare simulator - and "got kicked pretty hard in the leg, and I think he hurt his knee pretty bad."
"My immediate thought upon hearing Corey's account, which so closely paralleled that of the woman in Minneapolis, was that it was true," Haney writes. "And if so, it meant that if Tiger never catches Jack Nicklaus, it will very likely have as much to do with the time and physical capacity he lost as a result of his bizarretitleist Scotty Cameron Buttonback Putter as anything else."
