Just read an article in Philly.com about a law suit being brought against Tiger Woods’s former coach Hank Haney by a student in the Hank Haney International Junior Golf Academy. The student paid $30,000 for the program which was to include a “meaningful relationship” with each participant, yet alleges he received seven minutes of one on one time with Haney over several sessions.
A quick calculation, $30,000 divided by 7, and I come up with $4,285 per minute for those lessons.
Having not met Hank, I have only what I’ve seen on TV and interactions online to evaluate him and he seems like a decent chap. It will be interesting to see how this situation pans out.
That is completely outragous. I can see why students would pay that kind of money; get results, become a better player, etc. But for seven minutes with one of the best instructors in the world, i’d rather spend over 4 g’s on a brand new set of sticks.
