Woods may waive coach


<image="1" align="left" />Tiger Woods has admitted for the first time that he might play without a coach in the future, after his recent split from Sean Foley.

Woods, who is rehabilitating from a back injury, posted an article on his blog this week in which he addressed his failure to hire a replacement for Foley, his swing coach of the previous four years.

 “As for my coaching situation, there is no hard-and-set rule on this,” Woods said. “I may just do it on my own. I’m keeping my options very, very open. I need to get healthy first before I start back and see how I feel. That’s the No. 1 concern. And from there, then I can start deciding where I want to go with it.’’

Woods said that he still had not swung a golf club since he played the PGA Championship in August, but added that he hoped to resume practising later this month, or early in October.  “I got my strength back and need to get my explosiveness back before I start.”

Woods and Foley, who is also the swing coach for Justin Rose, ended their partnership recently. Previously the former world No. 1worked with Hank Haney from 2004-2010, and prior to that with Butch Harmon.
