PostSubject: Tiger's new coach, Chris Como   Sun Nov 23, 2014 8:34 am

Tiger has appointed a new coach in Chris Como, all the best to the both of them and it would be interesting to see what he does for/to Tiger considering that Como is studying for his masters in biomechanics.

A mature tour pro with such a gifted caliber like Tiger, actually he does not need  a swing coach ...

I think Tiger should just go back to Butch.

According to some article, Butch said he will not coach TW again. And I think vice versa. Very Happy It will also be a matter of time that TW will change his caddie. SW wants to go back to TW, but will TW take him back? Very Happy

Tiger has been leaning towards a 'biomechanics' golf coach since he split with foley. I was fortunate enough to spend time with Tim Suzor and Tony Morgan from K-Vest(guys who have had a big influence on players such as Brian Gay, Charles Howell III and David Toms) in Australia this year and Tim mentioned that Tiger spoke to Charles and Notah because he 'wanted to go down the road of biomechanics with his swing'  For those who don't know much about golf biomechanics, it's a coaching system based on efficiency and not just aesthetics in the swing. Which to me makes sense because with Como,Tiger is going to hopefully swing in a way that is more sustainable.

But of course we all know that Tiger as an amazing athlete. But for a man who has had that much repair done for his body...It's questionable whether any coach could take him to the heights of 2000 again (also the fields are getting stronger and stronger)

I think that Tiger's arrogance got the better of him.

Anyway, it's too bad. I'm no longer optimistic about Tiger's future Sad

TW dislikes Butch Harmon because the latter talked too much about him without his prior consent ... That was one of the main reasons why they went separate way eventually ...

When Sean Foley was asked what advice he could offer Chris Como? He replied - "... Enjoy the Tiger ride ..."

There is certainly some meaning behind this phrase ... You have to decipher between the lines ... Laughing

Actually, cannot entirely blame Sean for TW's dismal performance over the years. He is full of injuries during that period and not playing manying tournaments, except for 2013 where he won 5. So the problem is still TW, not anyone else. He can sack as and when he wishes because he's the boss. But actually, as employee, he can also sack the boss if he can foresee what's about to happen. Being a Star pupil will put a lot of stress on the teacher if the pupil cannot perform, never mind if it's the pupil's fault.

Dont read too much into this.
TW's career went downhill after his wife kicked him out of the house.

Simple as that.

I wonder if he is going to make TW performs a similar feat ... Not sure if the latter back can hold with this kinda G-Force ...  lol!
