Tiger Woods Hank Haney got what he deserved Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

"Ok, that's a pretty safe bet", Johnson said while laughing.

"Nah, maybe I could - well, I'd go with Lee, if I didn't have to name a first name, I'd get a bunch of them right".

Haney coached Woods to 31 US PGA Tour titles, six of them majors, between 2004 and 2010 though their prior relationship has not curbed Woods' instinct to challenge the 63-year-old for his comments.

Haney was suspended at the PGA Tour's instruction, according to a joint statement from the Tour and SiriusXM posted on Twitter on Thursday evening.

Tiger Woods says that his former swing coach Hank Haney "deserved" his suspension from radio channel Sirius XM for making comments branded racists and sexist about female players on the eve of the US Women's Open. Haney is also a co-host on his radio show on SiriusXM, the Hank Haney Golf Radio, where he made some controversial remarks about the upcoming Women's U.S. Open.

The film is being helmed by James Mangold , the director of arguably one of the best superhero films ever ( Logan ). He's got Christian Bale and Matt Damon starring, and the first trailer has roared from the starting line.

Brain cramp aside, to go where Haney did with his comments on a global media platform also showed remarkable audacity especially in an age where political correctness has become paramount.

Haney said in the statement that he accepts his suspension and apologized again. While his apology comes across as meaningful, the words he said simply can't be undone. SiriusXM proudly covers and supports both women's and men's professional golf and the athletes that make them great. "SiriusXM is reviewing his status on SiriusXM going forward".

"This morning, I made some comments about women's golf and its players that were insensitive, and that I regret", Haney wrote.

"I have the biggest respect for the women who have worked so hard to reach the pinnacle of their sport, and I never meant to take away from their abilities and accomplishments".

"Honestly, Michelle Wie is hurt", Haney said. After discussing some other topics, Haney and Johnson apparently caught wind of some people criticizing their comments. "I don't know that many".
