Well, this almost came out of the clear blue sky. According to his official website, Tiger Woods has ended a four year relationship with his swing coach Sean Foley. This was his third coach after Butch Harmon and Hank Haney.
It’s interesting because although he wasn’t playing top of the line golf like he used to, he still won Player of the Year honors last year. That’s why it’s surprising because maybe Tiger thought things were going to click eventually.
Unfortuantely, Tiger has dealt with injuries all year. Tiger will go without a coach for now. Here’s his statement from his website:
“I’d like to thank Sean for his help as my coach and for his friendship,” Woods said. “Sean is one of the outstanding coaches in golf today, and I know he will continue to be successful with the players working with him. With my next tournament not until my World Challenge event at Isleworth in Orlando, this is the right time to end our professional relationship.”
“My time spent with Tiger is one of the highlights of my career so far, and I am appreciative of the many experiences we shared together,” Foley said. “It was a lifelong ambition of mine to teach the best player of all time in our sport. I am both grateful for the things we had the opportunity to learn from one another, as well as the enduring friendship we have built. I have nothing but respect and admiration for him.”
“Presently, I do not have a coach, and there is no timetable for hiring one,” added Woods.
Very curious to see how Tiger does without a coach. This is a first for his career. Tiger has always had a coach. Most golfers do. It’s possible he may have another coach before he even gets back out there however. You just never know!
