Tiger Woods to delay search for new coach

Tiger Woods reveals that he is not currently looking for a new swing coach as he is yet to swing a club in his recovery from his latest injury setback.

Tiger Woods has revealed that he is not currently looking for a new swing coach because he is yet to swing a club in his recovery from his latest injury setback.

The 14-time Major winner split with Sean Foley in August, three weeks after withdrawing from the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational after aggravating a back problem.

He has not played on the PGA Tour, or even practised intensely since, and Woods has stressed that his mind is focusing on patiently getting his rehabilitation right, rather than finding a replacement for Foley.

"I haven't swung a golf club yet," the former world number one told reporters on Monday. "I've only been shadow swinging without a club but I've been busting my butt in the gym pretty hard.

"I've got my strength back, which is nice. Now the next goal is to get my explosiveness – that's the next phase of my training.

"But am I looking for a new coach? As of right now, no, I'm not. I'm in no hurry to look for one. Right now I'm just trying to get physically better, stronger, faster, more explosive."

Woods has previously been coached by American compatriots Butch Harmon and Hank Haney.
