Butch Harmon reacted to Tiger Woods' comments Sunday in a brief interview with NBC prior to Woods' final round at the U.S. Open.
He said he understood why Woods was unhappy with his comments, but that his thoughts aren't his alone.
"I'm not saying anything players aren't saying on the range," Harmon said in an interview with Jimmy Roberts.
Harmon defended his comments on Woods, saying that he's being paid as a commentator for European broadcaster Sky Sports and owes it to viewers to be candid. He said he was responding to a question about Woods.
Harmon said Sunday that Woods' swing has changed since the two parted ways. He also said that Woods' body has changed, and that Tiger has a bigger chest and biceps, which could affect his swing. He also said that Woods is often secretive in his preparation.
"He doesn't like perople to dissect his swing," Harmon said.
