SCOTT MILLER: Did Tiger know you were writing the book? Did you seek his blessing?
HANK HANEY: I didn't reach out to him. They were my memories. I didn't see any reason to seek his blessing.
MILLER: Did you hear from Tiger after the book was published?
HANEY: No, the last time I talked to Tiger was the day after I resigned. He said "Hank, the most important thing is that we've been great friends. And we just need to make sure we stay like that." And I never heard from him again.
MILLER: Looking back on that conversation now, what do you think?
HANEY: We were friends. To the extent that Tiger was a friend to me, I don't know. I think he was. I know I was a great friend to Tiger Woods. But when you have a relationship that's involves business and friendship -- and the business part comes to an end -- things always get a little blurry. With Tiger, they probably get really blurry.
