Tiger Woods Splits With Coach Sean Foley

Tiger apologists are high-fiving each other in the streets following the announcement earlier today that Woods is parting ways with coach Sean Foley…one day after one of Foley’s other high-profile charges won the Barclay’s and took the lead in the FedEx Cup standings.

“With my next tournament not until my World Challenge event (Dec. 1-7) at Isleworth in Orlando, this is the right time to end our professional relationship,” Woods wrote on his website.

According to reports, Woods has no timetable to find a replacement. When he parted with Hank Haney in 2010, he coached himself for a while…a tough thing to do even for the former greatest golfer in the World to do.

Twitter is, of course, all a glow with the news, and golf writers are sharpening their longest knives as we speak.

“Just checked an old media guide. Brandel Chamblee’s birthday is July 2. I kept thinking it was today,” quipped AP golf maven Doug Ferguson, while ESPN’s Bob Harig brought all the Tigerphiles dreaming of another slam back to Earth with a resounding thud…

“Love all the chatter about Tiger going back to Butch. Won’t happen! Butch is busy, has nothing to gain — and he teaches Phil, remember?” he Tweeted. Let’s hope he’s right – Harmon and Haney both could help Tiger rekindle what he has left into more majors.
