Tiger Woods: ‘I May Just Do It On My Own’

At his press conference for the Hero World Challenge on Monday, Tiger Woods said he hasn’t been looking for a swing coach. In fact, he may never start.

Woods posted on his blog on Thursday that he might fly solo.

“As for my coaching situation, there is no hard-and-set rule on this. 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.”

He and Sean Foley split back in August, ending the four-year partnership without winning a major championship.

It’ll be interesting to see if Woods starts the coaching search once becoming healthy, as he hopes to begin swinging a club later this month or in early October. Until then, he’s enjoying being a family man.

“I’m feeling great. I’ve been home and with my kids a lot, and haven’t swung a club yet, but I have done some shadow swings in the mirror. I’m hoping to swing a club later this month or early next, but we’ll see how it goes. I got my strength back and need to get my explosiveness back before I start.”

He is scheduled to play in the Hero World Challenge in December, giving him a few months to tune his game before then.
