Haney suspended from SiriusXM show for women's golf comment
NEW YORK (AP) - Swing coach Hank Haney has been suspended from the SiriusXM PGA Tour Radio channel because of saying on his show that a Korean would probably win the U.S. Women's Open and that he couldn't name six players on the LPGA Tour.
He then said he would go with "Lee" and if he didn't have to mention a first name, "I'd get a bunch of them right."
Haney, who coached Tiger Woods for six of his majors from 2004 to 2010, apologized on Twitter.
A statement from the PGA Tour and SiriusXM said the comments were insensitive and do not represent the views of either party. The statement says Haney has been suspended "at the PGA Tour's instruction." Haney says he accepts and suspension and apologized again.
SiriusXM says it is reviewing his status going forward.
