Tiger Woods has officially announced that he is ending his relationship with his swing coach, Sean Foley.
“I’d like to thank Sean for his help as my coach and for his friendship,” Woods said, via his official website. “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.”
This is Tiger’s third swing coach that hasn’t made the cut. Tiger’s struggles in recents years has been his inability to to drive the ball consistently, but the bigger question remains whether Tiger should be focusing on who is next coach is or taking some time off from to simply focus on himself. His struggles with injuries coupled with many questionable quickly returns don’t seem to be helping either.
Another pro-golfer did try to offer some advice on Foley earlier this month via Twitter. Parker McLachlin is a former Foley pupil, who decided that Foley wasn’t offering any good help to his golf game.
Dear Tiger, Please turn off your brain and leave Foley on the range. You’ll stop missing it both ways. Sincerely, A Player Who’s Been There

Woods is now taking a break until December, and has taken McLachlin’s advice. Hopefully, it will help.
