Hank Haney: Tiger Did Not Use PEDs, Recevied Treatment For Sex Addiction

Tiger Woods never officially confirmed that he went to a clinic in Mississippi for sex addition but his former coach Hank Haney just did.

Woods never confirmed receiving treatment at a sex-addiction clinic in Mississippi. When Gray asks Haney point-blank what Woods is in therapy for, the golf teacher candidly said: “Well, the only thing that I knew about was his, you know, issue with the sex addiction.”

But Haney, who stepped down as Woods’ coach last Monday, said rumors Woods used performance-enhancing drugs are “100% false.”

Haney added that Tiger would be “better off if he was just was a little more forthcoming” about his injuries. Sounds like someone just got tired of dealing with all the BS in Woods’ camp.


Hank Haney: This Is My Decision

SBNation’s Waggle Room spoke with Hank Haney after the announcement that he would no longer coach Tiger Woods.

“I am thankful for the great opportunity and proud of the record Tiger has had with me helping him.”

Haney also spoke with The Golf Channel where he clarified that he made this decision himself and was not asked to leave.

“I will always look back upon our past half dozen years together as my best days in professional golf. It would be a dream of any coach to have a student like Tiger woods and for me it has come true. Just so there is no confusion I would like to make it clear that this is my decision.”
