Rush Limbaugh Is Latest Celebrity Student on 'The Haney Project'

According to the Hollywood Reporter, controversial right wing radio host Rush Limbaugh has signed up to star in the third season of 'The Haney Project,' in which Tiger Woods' former coach gives celebrities tips on how to improve their golf game.

The Golf Channel series will follow Limbaugh as he takes golf lessons from renowned instructor Hank Haney over the course of a season. Talking about it on his radio show, Limbaugh said that Haney's "taking me on as his third pupil to try to turn into somebody that can play the game." The previous celebrity students on the show were NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley and comedian Ray Romano.
Hank Haney is best-known for coaching golf superstars Tiger Woods and Michael O'Meara, although he announced the end of his association with Woods last month. The first season of 'The Haney Project,' in which he attempted to fix Barkley's famously bad swing, marked the highest-rated launch of an original series for the Golf Channel. The finale of the second season, with Ray Romano, aired earlier this month.

Limbaugh is the host of the most listened-to radio show in the U.S., and is passionate about the game of golf. Recently married for the fourth time, he first met his new wife at a golf tournament. In addition to 'The Haney Project,' he will also be seen talking about his love for the game in an upcoming episode of Golf Channel's summer series 'Golf in America.'

The third season of 'The Haney Project' is due to air in spring 2011.

The second season of 'Golf in America' starts on the Golf Channel June 22 at 9PM ET.

I guess they're trying to tap into the elusive lunatic teabagger market.

Rush Limbaugh is no Tiger Woods, not even close.
