Tiger Woods Was Nasty To Elin Nordegren, Says Tell-All Book

A controlling Tiger Woods wouldn’t let Elin celebrate his golf wins, says his former swing coach in a new tell-all book.

Tiger Woods, 36, was not a model husband to former wife Elin Nordegren, says swing coach Hank Haney in his new book, The Big Miss, due out on March 27.

According to Haney, Tiger was controlling with Elin and wouldn’t even allow her to celebrate his golf victories.

“E, that’s not what we do. We’re supposed to win,” Haney claims Tiger said to Elin.

“As life became more complicated, I thought Elin changed…She and Tiger developed a calm, almost cool relationship in front of other people, and conversations with them tended to be awkward and strained. I never saw them argue, but they weren’t openly affectionate either,” Haney says.

He also adds that when Tiger finished eating, he’d get up and walk out expecting Elin to follow, even if she wasn’t finished with her meals, according to excerpts from the book pulled by the New York Post.

“When he was done — and he habitually ate fast — you were done,” Haney says.

And apparently, the golfer had a raunchy sense of humor, laughing at South Park’s depiction of him calling Elin a “crazy b*tch” and a “stupid Swedish cow.”

Despite him cutting ties with Tiger in 2010 after six years of service, Haney never fully condemns Tiger and concludes in his book that he left with great memories and wishes him only the best.

But Tiger told ESPN.com recently that he doesn’t feel the same.

“I think it’s unprofessional and very disappointing,” Tiger said of Haney’s book, “especially because it’s someone I worked with and trusted as a friend.”
