SHEBOYGAN, Wis. – Tiger Woods confirmed the possibility that he could begin working with swing coach Sean Foley, although to hear the world No. 1 say it Tuesday afternoon following his practice round at Whistling Straits the two still seem to be in the interview phase of the relationship.
“(It’s) certainly a possibility, but there are a lot of other coaches out there as well that would be a possibility,” Woods said.
Similarly, when asked by the Associated Press whether he’s working with Woods, Foley said, “I wouldn’t say that. But the possibility is there.”
Foley walked the front nine on Tuesday with Woods and Hunter Mahan and Sean O’Hair, both players are among Foley’s regular stable, and Woods and the Orlando, Fla.-based instructor talked often during the round.
“I did ask him to film a couple (of swings) so I could take a look at it,” Woods said.
Foley stopped walking with the Woods group at the 10th hole when Stephen Ames, who also works with the native Canadian, teed off in the group behind them.
Although Foley dismissed the possibility of working with Woods earlier this year after Hank Haney stepped down following The Players Championship, he has spent plenty of time analyzing his swing and once said he has the most extensive video library of Woods’ action anywhere.
