Video: Tiger did not like those book questions

Tiger Woods had his usual timid press conference on Wednesday at PGA National, and while it had the bland answers Woods usually gives reporters, it did have a surprise moment when Tiger lost his cool.

Asked by Alex Miceli about the recent excerpts from Hank Haney's tell-all book about Woods, Tiger said he wasn't going to answer anymore questions and actually broke his cool for a moment. The video is below, so watch it for yourself, but you can obviously tell Tiger isn't a big fan of this upcoming book and might even hate questions about the book more.

The bottom line here is Hank Haney is a bottom feeder. While he was the coach of Tiger he was confided in as a friend as well. I'm sure Tiger told Haney things he considered private and assumed that as friends it would go no further than Hank. Well years later now after that friendship ended for whatever reason, Haney decided it would be an easy buck to write a tell all book from his perspective of everything Woods told him........................talk about betrayal, and people wonder why Tiger is upset when asked about the book....Really? If my friends did that to me I'd be bent too.

Maybe we should all probably understand that one doesn't just choose to be a SEAL. You first have to join the military, prove yourself in the Navy and then go through one of the most rigorous selection/weeding processes known to mankind. It is utterly brutal and only a tiny percentage get to be a SEAL. Tiger being a SEAL sounds a lot like Elvis being a policeman - a fantasy he deluded himself into partaking because he had money, fame and enablers to allow him to think he could do it. At least Tiger never went through with the charade. Maybe he just felt so full of himself that it was something he believed he could achieve. In any event, Haney is a bit of slug for revealing things, but Tiger should have had a confidentiality agreement with him to prevent this "tell all" garbage.

I guess Tiger should make a list with his own questions he wants to answer, no class at all.

Whether you like Tiger or not you should be able to see why it would piss, or ANY athlete off.  You have a coach or teammate or any sort of confidant for years, then they betray you by trying to make a dollar off of telling things that were supposedly private.

Haney is the one who looks bad.

Heck, he looked bad the moment he told Barkley his swing issue is not mental ... WHAT??????   Lost alot of credibiltiy there as a coach and now he is losing it as a person.

Why would other golfers want to confide in him and go with him now?

@Blackhouse: Clearly you never heard of LeBron James when he was playing for the Cavs.

Poor tiger.  I guess he feels picked on.  It would have been much quicker if tiger would have just answered the question instead of calling the questioner a beauty.  Tiger is a spoiled baby.  We all know the answer to the SEAL question, and there is no way in hell tiger could have made it.  I love the defenders talking about tiger's personal life and how that is nobody's business.  Wrong again.  Tiger put himself out there as a promotion giant, and now he wants privacy.  I love tiger struggling and I will continue to love it for as long as he goes out on the course and fails to win; over and over again.

Lanny, both questions were out of line. Kelly Tilgman is always muted by me. Miceli, I fortunately don't have to listen to him at all. Love that bow tie though, so Tucker Carlson!

How dare anyone ask his holiness a question that he doesn't approve of.  Woods is the most pampered and sheltered athelete I have ever seen in my 44 years on the planet.
