Tiger Woods called Steve Williams an “idiot”

On a recent episode of Golf’s Subpar Podcast, former Tiger Wood’s coach Hank Haney spoke about him.

Hank Haney, statements

“People speculate all the time about him, but they are guessing, I was there, I spent 150 days a year with him for six years.

He was incredible, just unbelievable. I would stand on the driving range and just think, there is no way these guys could beat him. There’s just no possible way, and honestly, he wasn’t nearly as good on the course. I told this to a few people.

I’ve taught over 200 touring pros, and the worst player at taking it from the driving range to the golf course that I ever coached was Tiger Woods. I’m gonna tell you what. He won 45 per cent of the time he teed it up when I helped him, and on the driving range you’d think there’s no way this guy could ever lose, but you are always going to have regression.”



There is a video from Skratch from 2005. Woods explains how Haney and his caddie Steve Williams had a joke that if they were 50 yards or in then they should tell him to aim a little bit right or left so as to avoid smashing the flag.

Then what does Woods go and do? Yep, he smashes the flag. Then Williams reportedly let slip on their private joke. Woods’ response? “You idiot, why didn’t you just tell me this!?” He is among the most successful sportsmen ever, as well as one of the richest in the world.


When it comes to firsts Tiger Woods is always present: 15 majors won, 110 professional tournaments, the most successful golfer in the history of this sport. Statistics that explain why he managed to stay at the top of the world ranking for 683 weeks (of which 281 consecutive) and above all because in 2014 he became the first sportsman in the world to have broken the billion dollar barrier.

Astronomical figure that also justifies the fact that Tiger Woods can afford a yacht like the Privacy, a real fairytale boat. And obviously we are talking about something that has cost a lot. If you imagine a luxury yacht and some comfort on board, then Privacy has it.

48 meters long, with a total area of ​​600 square meters, this yacht was purchased by the golfer in 2004. Equipped with five cabins capable of accommodating a total of ten people, she also boasts four quarters for nine crew members.

Tiger Woods usually calls it “my dinghy” even if everything looks like a dinghy: with a cruising speed of 18 knots, he also has a gym on board where the golfer keeps training. Woods, in fact, prefers to stay on this yacht during the tournaments held in New York.
