The Big Miss is Hank Haney’s can­did and sur­pris­ingly in­sight­ful ac­count of his tu­mul­tuous six- year jour­ney with Tiger Woods, dur­ing which the supremely gifted golfer col­lected six ma­jor cham­pi­onships and rewrote golf his­tory. Hank was one of the very few peo­ple al­lowed be­hind the cur­tain. He was with Tiger 110 days a year, spoke to him over 200 days a year, and stayed at his home up to 30 days a year, ob­serv­ing him in nearly ev­ery cir­cum­stance: at tour­na­ments, on the prac­tice range, over meals, with his wife, and re­lax­ing with friends.

Thus, the book is first of its kind that is as in­ti­mate and re­veal­ing, or one so wise about what it takes to coach a su­per­star ath­lete.
