Tiger Woods will be fine, swing coach predicts
Sean Foley, the swing coach for Tiger Woods, believes his client will return to form after pulling out of the U.S. Open because of a lingering injury to his left knee.
“He’s doing the right thing,” Foley told The Washington Times on Wednesday. “A lot of people in golf are selfish, and this is affecting them and making them upset. This is about my buddy who has taken responsibility. I’m proud to see that he has realized this is the best thing to do. It’s frustrating in the short term, but the big picture is much better.”
Foley has worked with Woods since the summer of 2010. Because of the knee, Woods withdrew from the first round of the Players Championship last month after nine holes.
“You look at the sidelines in the Stanley Cup and NBA championship and there are a lot of guys who would like to play and would be hurt,” Foley said. “Anyone at the highest levels of sport is overusing their bodies too much.
“The body’s not meant to create that much linear force and torque force. Go to the driving range before the Open and ask every guy, and I bet you he’s hurting.”
Woods, 35, hasn’t won a tournament for a year and a half. But Foley is adamant he will return to form.
“He’ll get over it,” Foley said. “If you don’t believe in Tiger Woods’ ability to play golf, you’re crazy. Who doesn’t go through a dry spell in life? We all do.”
