Tiger Woods might hire himself as new swing coach

If you want to get something done, then do it yourself, might be the new strategy Tiger Woods employs when it comes to hiring a new swing coach.

Last month, Tiger Woods parted ways with swing coach Sean Foley. Earlier this week, Woods talked about hiring a new coach.

“Am I looking for a new coach? As of right now, no, I’m not,” Woods said. “Right now I’m just trying to get physically better, stronger, faster, more explosive.”

Then on Thursday, Woods posted on his website that there is no “hard-and-set” rule or timeframe for when he expects to hire a new swing coach. His new coach might be staring back at him when he looks in the mirror.

“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 wrote.

Woods said he is relying on Notah Begay, his former teammate at Stanford and a longtime friend, to help him decide the next step.
