'Tiger Woods loved porn and potty-humour'

Tiger Woods’ ex-coach Hank Haney has painted a less than flattering image of one of the most successful golfers of all time in an explosive tell-all book, depicting Woods’ as ill-mannered, cheap and a lover of pornography and potty-humour.

In the book ‘The Big Miss’, Haney has revealed that before the 2006 Ryder Cup, several golfers, including dedicated Christian Zach Johnson, shared a hotel room with Woods.

Tiger ‘immediately purchased the adult-move 24-hour package and turned it on,’ Haney said, according to the New York Post.

And Johnson had no choice but to ignore the adult programming.

The Swing coach has also mentioned about Woods’ often selfish and egocentric behaviour.

In the book ‘The Big Miss’, Haney has divulged that during their six years together, Woods showed little respect for those around him, making others pay for takeout and simply leaving a restaurant when he was done eating – irrespective of whether those around him had finished.

For months, Haney was scared to ask the 36-year-old for a Popsicle when the golfer was heading to the refrigerator.

“He never offered me one or ever came back with one,” he writes in his book.

He has described the anguish he felt over Woods’ simple lack of courtesy, the Daily Mail reported.

“It actually took me a while to summon the courage to blurt out, ‘Hey, Bud, do you think I could have one of those Popsicles?’”

The ex-coach insists that the American golfer let his fame go to his head.

When he would go out to eat with now ex-wife Elin Nordegren, he would get up and leave, expecting her to follow – even if she hadn’t finished her food.

“When he was done – and he habitually ate fast – you were done,” he wrote.

While Tiger said he hated the ‘vultures’ in media for picking apart his personal life, he strangely loved his South Park depiction, in which he is seen calling Nordegren a ‘fat Swedish cow.’

The coach quit via text message in May 2010 – apparently a good decision since he said that Tiger was glued to his phone and would routinely ignore people to SMS.

As it turned out, the golfer was messaging his mistresses.

Meanwhile, Woods has written off the book, calling it ‘unprofessional and very disappointing.’

He told ESPN.com in a telephone interview the book – which will be released prior to the Masters – was particularly hurtful because ‘it’s someone I worked with and trusted as a friend.’

He dubbed Haney’s anecdotes ‘one-sided’ and a cheap way to earn money.

“I’m not going to waste my time reading it,” Woods said.

In the end, the 247-page book, which will release on Mar 27, ends with Haney wishing Woods well – he also thanks him for ‘an incredibly rewarding six years.’
