Woods' former coach Haney doubts he would be great again.

London, Mar 27( ANI ): Ace golfer Tiger Woods' former coach Hank Haney has his reservation about the former champion ever reaching his peak again.

Haney has been in news lately due to his book, which goes on sale Tuesday, and which archives the six years Haney coached Woods, from 2004 to 2010.

Haney writes in his new book 'The Big Miss' that after the National Enquirer published a story about Woods' affairs with other women, his golf game went from weakening to potentially irreparable.

"Unlike the Tiger who in his 20s and 30s was virtually indomitable, today's Tiger has discovered that in life real disaster lurks. Plans don't come true. Things can go wrong. That realization creates doubt, and in competitive golf doubt is a killer," Haney writes in his book.

"Tiger always had a wall up, behind which I'd long imagined there was some kind of personal turmoil. The 2007 season was when I first began to think that Tiger was closer to the end of his greatness than he was to the beginning. In hindsight, I think Tiger did too," he adds.

"Rusty' was a gentle description of Tiger's game. He simply didn't have his old command. His body speed seemed slower, and for the first time I'd ever observed, he was mis-hitting a lot of shots," Haney added in his book. ( ANI )
