O’Hair and Foley part ways
While swing coach Sean Foley is still working with Tiger Woods, Sean O’Hair has informed him he’s moving on.
While swing coach Sean Foley will still be working with Tiger Woods, Sean O’Hair has informed him he’s moving on.
O’Hair has been working with Foley since the 2008 RBC Canadian Open, but he recently informed him that he would be going another route. The American has missed his last five cuts, and withdrew from this week’s Wells Fargo Championship in Charlotte.
“He hasn’t played well this year,” Foley said.
“He told me he’s going to go in a different direction. I hope he finds somebody who can help him. He told me he’s been seeing some things he didn’t like in his swing. As far as I’m concerned, I want the best for him.”
It was actually O’Hair that first gave Woods Foley’s number, helping to kickstart their working relationship.
With Woods currently out through injury, Foley says they haven’t been working together recently, and that he has “no idea” if Woods will be playing in the Players Championship next week or not.
28-year-old O’Hair has had a rough time of it so far in 2011, dropping down to 158th on the money list. He also hasn’t won in two years.
“It’s unfortunate,” Foley said. “I’d say Sean in 2009 was arguably one of the best players in the world, Last year was also quite a big year for him.”
Foley will continue to work with Woods, as well as a number of other big name clients, including Justin Rose, Stephen Ames, and Hunter Mahan.
