Tiger Woods posted on his blog Thursday that he's still undecided about whether to hire a new swing coach.
“As for my coaching situation, there is no hard-and-set rule on this,” Woods said. “I may just do it on my own. I’m keeping my options very, very open. I need to get healthy first before I start back and see how I feel. That’s the No. 1 concern. And from there, then I can start deciding where I want to go with it.”
Woods also addressed his recovery from a back surgery, saying that he hasn’t swung a club since missing the cut at the PGA Championship in August, but that he hopes to swing a club “later this month or early next.”
“I got my strength back and need to get my explosiveness back before I start.”
Woods said recently that his former coaches didn’t know as much about the golf swing as he did.
“I think I know a lot more than they do,” said Woods. “They’ve never played down the stretch of a major championship. What do the hands feel? What does the body feel?”
Woods announced last month that his relationship with swing coach Sean Foley had ended after a four-year partnership that began after Woods split from Hank Haney, with whom he worked from 2004-2010. Prior to Haney, Woods worked with Butch Harmon from 1996-2004.
