“Presently, I do not have a coach, and there is no timetable for hiring one,” added Woods.
PARAMUS, N.J. (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – Tiger Woods announced on Monday his plans to leave swing coach Sean Foley after four years and no majors.
Woods said on his website Monday he will no longer work with Foley.
“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.”
Woods has had back trouble the last year and is taking the next three months to get stronger.
Foley was the third coach Woods hired as a professional. He left Butch Harmon in 2003 and began working with Hank Haney a year later. He parted with Haney in the spring of 2010 when Woods returned from the scandal in his personal life.
Woods began working with Foley at the 2010 PGA Championship.
