Tiger Woods is back in the news this week in a big way – thanks to success on the golf course, but also due to a new book out today. Hank Haney is Woods' former coach, and today, his book "The Big Miss: My Years Coaching Tiger Woods" will bring to light some parts of the Woods story Woods would rather not discuss.
Tonight, Haney talks to Piers Morgan in a live, prime time exclusive interview at 9pmET.
This comes less than 48 hours after Woods got his first PGA Tour win since 2009, besting the field in the Arnold Palmer Invitational on Sunday.
But now the story shifts to Haney. What's in the book? Here's a taste:
"Tiger was seriously considering becoming a Navy SEAL," read an excerpt from Haney's forthcoming book on the website of Golf Digest. One of the magazine's journalists helped write the book.
"I didn't know how he'd go about it, but when he talked about it, it was clear he had a plan," Haney said.
Woods' agent dismissed that passage as "armchair psychology" – and recently called the book "self-serving." But the revelations that Haney writes about will surely stir up strong feelings from Woods fans and detractors alike – and tonight, Piers Morgan asks about all of it.
Another author on "Piers Morgan Tonight" recently was Jodi Kantor, author of "The Obamas." Piers squared off with Kantor over many of the facts presented in the book:
