Tiger Woods can't catch a break and I am not so sure he deserves one after his cheating ways. It's rumored that wife Elin Nordegren is preparing to divorce his ass. He dropped out of competition this past weekend, citing physical ailments. Now, his coach, Hank Haney, has resigned. Worst of all, he quit via text message. That's almost as bad as being dumped by a lover via text.
"I believe at this time that it is in both of our best interests for me to step aside as Tiger's coach," Haney said in a statement to The Golf Channel. "I will always look back upon our past half dozen years together as my best days in professional golf." That's quite a diplomatic way to put it.
Haney did not give a particular reason for his departure from Team Tiger, saying it was just time to move on. He told KTCK-AM sports radio in Dallas on Tuesday that he had resigned via text message, so that's not a rumor.
He told the radio station, "I texted him last night [that I was leaving], and he texted me back. We went back and forth for a while, but he had his kids last night and couldn't talk. We are going to talk later today." Haney also insisted that he was not fired and that his former client will return to the top of the golf food chain once his sex scandal is in the rear view.
Is all this negative activity karma for Woods?
