Tiger Woods considered becoming a Navy SEAL

(WFLX)- Tiger Woods almost gave up golf to become a Navy SEAL. That's according to a new book by his former swing coach.

In "The Big Miss" Steve Haney writes that Woods was "seriously considering" becoming a SEAL.

His dad was a former Green Beret.

Haney claims Woods did four days of special operations training in 2004, including parachute jumps and hand-to-hand combat exercises.

The book will be released March 27th.

One person who won't be reading it is Woods' agent, who calls the book "disrespectful."
