Lee Westwood parts ways with coach Sean Foley
Sean Foley loses one of his many golfers in the world top 40.
Lee Westwood has decided to get rid of swing coach Sean Foley. Foley, as you more likely know him coaches Tiger Woods as well as Justin Rose and Hunter Mahan.
Westwood told GolfWeek he felt like he was going in a different direction than Foley.
"I just wanted to work on swing positions and stuff like that a bit more. I didn't feel like Sean coached like that, so it didn't really fit what I wanted to do."
Westwood just started working with Foley about seven months ago. Westwood was as high as No. 8 in the world last year but has fallen to No. 33.
"I felt like I had the game that got me to world number one. And I was working on stuff that I didn't work on back then, so it made sense to go back to what I was working on before."
Westwood reiterated to Golf Channel that there are no hard feelings.
"I just wanted something else, a new way of teaching," Westwood said. "I did enjoy working with him."
Westwood had six top 10 finishes on the PGA Tour last season including a third at the British Open. He said he has a new coach "in the pipeline" but hasn't named him yet.
