World No.1 says swing changes being 'rewarded with results'

Tiger Woods is finally getting to grips with his new swing changes, the world No.1 has revealed.
Speaking at the BMW Championship, Woods said he was starting to understand the changes he has been working on with rumoured new coach, Sean Foley.
"I needed to understand the full concept before I committed to what I was doing," said Woods, who has been showing a return to form of late.
"It's nice when you get rewarded with results, and the shots that I'm hitting now, it's been a long time since I've been able to do that. That's always a good sign."
Woods' poor form meant the 34-year-old started the FedEx Cup play-offs with just one of the four tournaments - The Barclays - on his schedule.
But a 12th place finish there secured him entry to the Deutsche Bank, where he needed to finish higher than T59 to secure his place in the next event, which he duly did with a tie for 11th.
That improvement has been largely attributed to Foley, swing coach to Woods' friend and fellow PGA Tour star Sean O'Hair. He first took video footage of the world No.1's swing at the PGA Championship before spending time with him again at The Barclays Pro-Am.
Despite this, Woods has refused to name Foley directly as his coach, instead telling the media in the same press conference that whether he was paying him for his services were "none of your business" and claiming the duo were "working" on their relationship.
