Hank Haney quits as Tiger Woods' coach

Tiger Woods and his longtime swing coach are parting ways.

Haney announced on his website that he will no longer be working with the embattled golf star.

"I have informed Tiger Woods this evening that I will no longer be his coach," Haney announced on Hankhaney.com Monday evening.

Haney has worked with Woods for the past six seasons.

Haney called his time as Woods' coach "my best days in professional golf." He stressed that it was his decision, and not Woods', to move on.

"Tiger Woods and I will always be friends," Haney writes, "but I believe that there is a time and place for everything and I feel at this time and at this place in my life I want to move forward in other areas."

Haney said he wished his former pupil well in golf and "in finding peace and happiness in all aspects of his life."

"Tiger knows that if he ever needs me in anyway, whether it be with his golf or just as a friend he can always call," Haney writes.

Before Tiger, Haney worked with Mark O'Meara. Woods and Haney started working together after Tiger had a falling out with previous coach Butch Harmon.
