London, May 19 (ANI): Tiger Woods has received another major blow, with his ex-coach Butch Harmon, turning down the offer to work with him again.
"The world No 1 asked his agent Mark Steinberg to sound out Harmon about a reunion after Hank Haney quit last week. But Harmon, who now coaches Phil Mickelson and a host of other top stars - including Open champ Stewart Cink - rejected the offer," reports The Sun.
Harmon preferred to stick with Mickelson, who needs one more win to topple his rival from the top spot after his third Masters triumph in April.
Harmon coached woods from 1993 to 2004.
Tiger Woods former swing coach, Hank Haney, has said that he is relieved to have parted ways with the world No 1 after six years of working together.
"I am better off out of it. That's the bottom line. It's a huge weight off my shoulders," said Haney.
"I wish he had stood up in a Press conference and announced, at the very least, he was sick of all the criticism of me, that he backed me and that he believed in me. But he never did," he dded. (ANI)
