Butch Harmon doesn't think Tiger Woods needs a coach
Will Tiger Woods replace Sean Foley? His old coach Butch Harmon doesn't think he needs to or should given that he's the greatest player ever.
Of course if Woods backs up a tank of cash that would be a tough offer to refuse given how much cash Woods actually has, but for now the answer is a resounding "no."
And that apparently cuts both ways. Not only that but Harmon thinks Woods should go it alone from here on out.
"No I would not and he’s not going to call and ask," Harmon said. "I don’t think he needs a swing coach. If I were advising Tiger I’d tell him, 'You’re the greatest player that ever lived, just go to the range and hit shots.'"
What a quote right there.
Tiger's actually not the greatest ever but multiple have suggested, probably correctly, that he might be better off just picking the paintbrush up again and going to work. Harmon is among them.
"Sean’s had great success. He has nothing to hang his head about. I called him and told him that. I told him he worked his tail for this guy," Harmon said. "Nothing lasts forever."
That's certainly true, but it's going to be riveting to see who Woods hires next.
