Hank Haney says he's done with Tiger Woods, finished, it's over.

The Golf Channel reports that Haney has informed Woods that he is leaving the Tiger Woods team as swing coach of the world's No. 1 player.

"Just so there is no confusion, I would like to make it clear this is my decision," Haney said in a statement prepared for the Golf Channel.

Haney's voluntary departure came amid swirling controversy started by NBC announcer Johnny Miller, who said on air that Woods should make a change.

"I have informed Tiger Woods that I will no longer be his coach," is how a lengthy statement from Haney began.

Haney's departure leaves the battered world of Woods even more battered.

Woods record during his time with Haney was impressive, second to no one.

The two got together after Woods dumped Butch Harmon and was introduced to Haney by champions tour player and Woods pal, Mark O'Meara.
