The Big Miss excerpt: Tiger prohibited Elin from celebrating when he won

The much anticipted book The Big Miss by Tiger Woods' former swing coach Hank Haney is set to hit shelves next week. Of course, a little juice has leaked and in it Haney claims Tiger Woods didn't share his popcicles--AND he didn't want Elin to smile or celebrate when he won. Here's the latest from the book, which is being excerpted in the New York Times:

After Woods won the 2005 Buick Invitational, his first stroke-play victory in nearly 16 months and his first with Haney as his coach, Nordegren wanted to celebrate. She pointed out that when she was a nanny for Jesper Parnevik, his family would hold a party whenever Parnevik won. Woods responded: “E, that’s not what we do. I’m not Jesper. We’re supposed to win.”

Haney writes that Nordegen was shocked and her smile got smaller. He noticed that “in the future Elin would keep her emotions under wraps whenever Tiger won.”

Hell to the naw!! That is ridiculous!

This is why she beat him upside his head with that golf club--all that pent up emotion needed to be released!

I can't wait to read the rest of the book. What do you think?
