New York: Tiger Woods' former swing coach thinks the 14-time major winner's chances at the Masters next week depend on his putter.
Once a coach, always a coach for Hank Haney even after writing a detailed book about his most famous student.
"I don't think you can predict how someone is going to putt," Haney said on Wednesday while signing copies of his book, "The Big Miss: My Years Coaching Tiger Woods," at a midtown Manhattan golf store a day after its release. "Tiger hasn't putted well enough at Augusta in some time, since 2005. If he putts well — it really gets down to eliminating three putts. If he does that I would be very surprised if he doesn't have a chance to win. I'd be shocked if he doesn't have a chance to win."
