KAPALUA, Hawaii (AP) — Hank Haney is finishing up a book about the six years he spent as the swing coach for Tiger Woods.

The book is called "The Big Miss," and it is scheduled to be published on March 27, which is a week before the Masters.

Haney says the book is a collection of his notes and observations from the time he spent working with Woods. He says he was with Woods for 110 days a year and stayed in his house for about 30 of those days.

Haney wrote the book with Jaime Diaz of Golf Digest. He is not revealing any stories from the book until it is published. But he says even the most ardent fans of Woods will find it hard to put down.
