Lost in the midday media frenzy at The Barclays, which focused almost exclusively on Tiger Woods’ recently completed divorce, was some insight into the world No. 1’s swing and his work with his apparent new instructor Sean Foley.
Woods acknowledged he worked with Foley twice in central Florida since returning from the PGA Championship and that he “just needs more reps” to fine-tune some of things the two have been working on.
As for the long-term plan with Foley, Woods remained aloof as to whether he plans a wholesale remake of his swing, which he rebuilt after winning the 1997 Masters under the guidance of Butch Harmon and again in 2004 with Hank Haney.
“I still haven't officially done it yet,” Woods said. “It's an undertaking that I have to wrap my head around because it's going to take some time.”
