Tiger Woods splits from Sean Foley

2014 08 453260504

Tiger Woods has parted ways with Sean Foley after a four years of working with the Orlando based coach. During his time with Foley, Woods won nine PGA Tour events, but, crucially, never added to his tally of 14 majors.


On a statement released on his website, the American thanked Foley for his hard work in their time spent together.

“I'd like to thank Sean for his help as my coach and for his friendship,” said the world No.12. “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.”

Sean Foley, whose students include recent Barclays champion Hunter Mahan, leaves Tiger after fulfilling what he describes as a ‘lifetime ambition’.

“My time spent with Tiger is one of the highlights of my career so far,” said the Canadian. “I am appreciative of the many experiences we shared together. 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.”

After dropping Sean Foley, the door is open for another coach to take up the role. But Tiger Woods insist he doesn’t have anyone lined yet.

“Presently, I do not have a coach, and there is no timetable for hiring one,” said the 38-year-old.

His past coaches include Butch Harmon and Hank Haney. The bridge between Woods and Haney is long since burned after Haney’s explosive book documenting his years with Woods ‘The Big Miss’.

However, there have been calls for the injured star to go back to Harmon. Whether Woods will swallow his pride, or Harman will have the time to work with Tiger again, remains to be seen.
