Harmon on Woods reunion: I won't and he won't ask


Let the speculation begin; just don’t include Butch Harmon in any of it.

In the moments following the announcement on Monday that Tiger Woods and swing coach Sean Foley had parted ways, Harmon reached out to the Canadian with a simple message.

“Sean’s had great success. He has nothing to hang his head about. I called him and told him that. I told him he worked his tail for this guy,” Harmon said. “Nothing lasts forever.”

As for whether Harmon – who was Woods’ swing coach from August 1993 to August 2002 and currently teaches Phil Mickelson, Rickie Fowler and Jimmy Walker – would be interested in working with the former world No. 1 again, he left no room for ambiguity.

“No I would not and he’s not going to call and ask,” Harmon said. “I don’t think he needs a swing coach. If I were advising Tiger I’d tell him, ‘You’re the greatest player that ever lived, just go to the range and hit shots.’”
