Tiger Fires Sean Foley
TheSandTrap.com Top Picks
When I saw this thread, I thought this was the "Onion."
I have no idea what Tiger wants, but I hope a new set of eyes does help.
I saw an analysis over the weekend of Tiger's very late release of lag with the driver, juxtaposed against his swing with Butch. The Butch release looked like the release advocated here at the Trap, as well as videos I've seen of Grant Waite, another center pivot swing.
The differences were obvious and enlightening.
Now I don't know if that was Foley or Tiger, but what they had... did not seem to be working, except for a 2+ month period last year.
I think that last year he won in spite of poor driving.
Tiger hasn't really been himself since 2009. On the golf course or, seemingly, off. I don't care about the latter.
I didn't particularly like the Haney backswing, and his new one is better. But the backswing doesn't matter as much as the downswing…
It is a topsport. Hard working. If things do not work out, the coach get fired. In Europe football is popular. It is the coach whom receives the blame. It might well be a mental issue. I saw TW on the Fallon show, and boy, that guy is buils like a brick.
Is it speculation of who would be the next one?
No shock, the writing seemed to be on the wall. I like Foley but it seemed like he was focusing more attention on his other pro's though not sure who's choice that was.
I guess Tiger is going for another clean slate for 2015, though I'd be shocked if him and Joe split unless Joe wants to work with someone else.
I guess the next question is, does Tiger go back to Butch or does he go it alone?
