Tiger Woods: Who is his coach?

Who Is Tiger Woods Coach

Tiger Woods has had many coaches throughout his career, but who is Tiger’s coach now?

The 15-time major champion has had several coaches throughout his career, but currently, Tiger doesn’t have an official swing coach. Although, it has been rumoured by Brandel Chamblee, that Notah Begay III, Tiger’s close friend and former college teammate, could be giving him some swing advice.

Right now, Tiger Woods is a self-taught golfer. Most recently, Chris Como taught Tiger, but that relationship ended in 2017. Butch Harmon was Tiger’s first coach on the PGA Tour, and is still his most successful.

Here’s a list of all the coaches that Tiger has employed throughout his long and successful career:

Butch Harmon 1993-2004

Harmon oversaw Woods win the Tiger Slam in 2000 and 2001, and is widely seen as one of the best golf coaches of all time, mainly for his stint with Tiger. Butch Harmon is also well known for his appearances as an analyst on Sky Sports Golf, and he still coaches some top players now. Tiger Woods  won 34 times on the PGA Tour under Butch Harmon, as well as many other events, amateur and professional.

Hank Haney 2004-2010

Tiger’s next coach was Hank Haney, and might be Tiger’s best-known coach for many reasons. After they split in 2010, Haney released a controversial, revealing book called “The Big Miss: My years coaching Tiger Woods.” Hank Haney doesn’t teach golfers anymore; Woods was his final client. Since then, the pair haven’t enjoyed the best relationship, but during their time together, Woods was still successful.

Sean Foley 2010-2014

Foley started working with Woods shortly after Hank Haney stopped teaching Woods. The pair only worked together for four years, and Foley was known for his technical coaching of Woods. Foley was the first coach who worked with Tiger during a time he didn’t win a major. Although, Woods and Foley had an amicable split, with Tiger saying that they stopped working together due to an injury he sustained.

Chris Como 2014-2017

Como was not a well-known coach before he started working with Tiger. Sadly for Como, Tiger was plagued with injury during this time, and Como never got much chance to implement his ideas with his pupil. However, Como now coaches another top player, in the form of Bryson DeChambeau. Como is qualified in biomechanics, and he likes to take these ideas into his golf coaching.

Tiger Woods 2018-Present

Tiger has taught himself since parting ways with Como, and guided himself to the 2019 Masters title, so we’d say he’s doing pretty well as his own swing coach. We don’t expect Tiger to get an official swing coach anytime soon, but he has a small network who will probably give him advice if he wants it.
