DR. FRANKENSTEIN HAD BETTER MATERIAL TO WORK WITH:

30 Seconds With Hank Haney: A Golf Swing Coach’s TV Project (Charles Barkley) (KAREN CROUSE, 3/02/09, NY Times)

Hank Haney, Tiger Woods’s swing coach, recently took a stab at straightening the swing of the Hall of Fame basketball player Charles Barkley, who looked as if he were trying to hack at a rattlesnake, not hit a golf ball. The result is “The Haney Project,” a weekly show that makes its debut Monday night on the Golf Channel. Haney talked about his collaboration with Barkley, who pleaded guilty last week to drunken-driving charges stemming from his Dec. 31 arrest in Arizona and will serve five days in jail this month. [...]

WHAT HAVE YOU HEARD FROM PEOPLE ON THE TOUR ABOUT THIS VENTURE? I’ve had more reaction from people talking to me about the show with Charles than anything I’ve done in teaching because everyone knows about his golf swing. He’s got the most recognizable swing in golf. It’s obviously not for a good reason, but that’s why everybody’s so curious.


They had the ad for this in heavy rotation during the Match Play championship this week--that's one coyote ugly swing.
