Sean Foley Makes a Great Point About Tiger
Tiger Woods changes swing coaches a lot (a lot a lot ... a lot), and his recent move to Sean Foley raised a few eyebrows (must ... resist ... stack and tilt ... joke).
But it seems that Foley is a rather intelligent fellow. He was asked about Tiger in a recent interview on PGATour.com, and made some compelling points, but this one might have been the smartest of his chat.
Making the swing I want him to make isn't that difficult for him, it's just that there's always going to be traces of every shot he's ever hit.
I mean, how true is that? Like how some golfers just can't shake certain golf swings at their home course that they face twice a week, Tiger will be compared to all of his golf shots over his career. When he's standing over a shot at Augusta National, we will get replays of his past success. When he's overlooking the 17th tee at Pebble Beach, the networks will replay his storm through the course in 2000.
All of that is true, but if Foley understands that (which apparently he does), it won't be nearly as hard to just do what he does and not worry about the other stuff.
Like a new relationship, if the girl is always comparing herself to your ex-lover, it'll never work, but if she's comfortable in herself, life can move on, and you can all be happy.
