Apart from his TV show, Haney is now focused on his corporate work, his International Junior Golf Academy based at Hilton Head, S.C. -- and taking the game to the people.
"Golf's been awful good to me, I have no problems doing that, I'm very thankful to the game of golf," says Haney, who is an active presence on Twitter, giving away tips to anyone who contacts him -- much to the chagrin of some of his peers.
"Last year I did clinics for over 15,000 people, so I feel like through Twitter and doing the clinics I'm much more able to reach a larger audience and giving back to the game a little bit.
"I enjoy being a top instructor who is willing and able to do those things."
He says his junior academy, which has almost 150 students from 22 countries, is not necessarily seeking to unearth the next Tiger Woods.
"I'm really proud of the fact that the kids don't just learn golf but they have a great education. Every kid from our academy last year went to college, 94 percent of them got scholarships. I really enjoy seeing how much they grow as people from being in our academy."
