I've got it! Tiger's next coach will be from… somewhere east of Orlando! The pattern is clear!

Rest assured I had to bring up a map to confirm this first but ...  are YOU going to be his next coach?!?!?!?!

That would certainly lead to a lot of discussions here on this forum.:beer:

 

I wonder if Tiger would blog here or have someone do it for him? For sure the "MySwing (Tiger)" thread would be full of responses. He might even get kickstarter of the month award with 10's of thousands of posts. ;-)

His page should be anonymous as a 20 handicapper that just can't quite get it together. ;-)

Grant is definitely on the short list. Tiger loves his swing, knows Grant is very knowledgeable and has picked his brain before. Grant being a former tour player probably doesn't hurt either.

I think this would be a great fit. Trouble is I thought Sean would be a great fit also.

 

Grant might not be enough of a change from Sean I guess would be the only negative I could think of.

Ha ha, dunno where Waite is based but NZ is certainly east of Orlando. Way way, way way east. a1_smile.gif

So says the imaginary International Date Line.  I would disagree though.  PRACTICALLY, NZ is west of Orlando because that's the direction you'd fly to get there. :-P

 

Would be neat to see Grant as his coach though.

I'll barf if it's Jim McLean.

Grant is an interesting choice. I know he works with Joseph Mayo in teaching; does Mayo come with Waite? Would be an interesting bit of work to see those guys work with Tiger.

Lee Como?

Dalton McCreary?

It basically has evolved to where Joe has his players and Grant has his players. Grant also teaches Baddeley with Chris Como.

Makes sense. 

 

Regardless, I think Grant would do good work with Tiger. Also, a little different. Going to Harmon, or McLean, or someone like that is kind of meh.

I can't imagine Tiger going to him. Tiger knows better than that, right?

It's funny how life works. 

 

Guess who had a front seat view of one of Tiger's greatest shots ever (the one from the fairway bunker on #18 at Glenn Abbey in the 2000 Canadian Open)?

 

Yup, Grant Waite.  He finished second and was paired with Tiger in the final round.

 

Guess who was the new up and coming brainiac instructor at the Abbey during that time?  Sean Foley...

I've been seeing and hearing some chatter about Chuck Cook, too. What is he like, in terms of instructor quality?
