JUPITER, Fla. (AP) — The next swing coach for Tiger Woods might be Tiger Woods.
Woods posted a blog on his website Thursday saying there was no “hard-and-set” rule on finding a new swing coach. He parted way with Sean Foley last month after two years. Woods only completed 25 founds this year because of a back injury that required surgery. He is not playing until the Hero World Challenge in December. He says he needs to get healthy before he figures out where to go with his game.
He says he is keeping his options “very, very open.”
Woods says he has bounced some ideas off Notah Begay, a former teammate at Stanford and a longtime friend. He says they have discussed what direction Woods should go with his game.
Higgins wins U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur
DEAL, N.J. (AP) — Joan Higgins won the U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur on Thursday at Hollywood Golf Club, hitting every fairway in regulation in a 1-up victory over Canada’s Judith Kyrinis.
The 58-year-old Higgins, a former University of Wisconsin tennis player who lives in Glendora, also won the 2008 U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur. Higgins took the lead with a par on the par-5 16th, matched Kyrinis with a bogey on the par-3 17th and a par — holing an 8-foot putt — on the par-4 18th.
