The Golf Blog says: Wow, what’s gotten into Sean Foley? Foley, the most recent swing coach to Tiger Wood, got pretty defensive about questions regarding his coaching, including suggestions made by Lee Trevino and others that Tiger Woods was better without Foley. So Foley blasted nearly everyone in sight. Click here for the March Golf Digest interview with Foley

1. First, he previously attacked Hank Haney, Tiger’s former coach. Foley said: “There was nothing about what he was doing in his previous swing that made any sense to me.” Ouch!

2. If that weren’t enough, Sean attacked Haney again: “Hank built most of his career around Tiger. I found most of that interview to be unprofessional. I don’t understand how, if you don’t get to know the person, how you can teach them. There is the business aspect of it where you have to keep things separate from that standpoint, but if you’re spending eight hours a day with this person you have to have some things in common. There was no way I was ever going to be able to stand on the range with anyone who was not kind to people or rude just to make my career better. I could care less about it. There has to be a semblance of ethics and values in the person. It’s interesting to see how hard Tiger works. How kind he is to the people at Isleworth. He’s a solid guy.”

3. Sean then went ballistic on golf commentators Brandel Chamblee and Johnny Miller: “When did Brandel Chamblee and Johnny Miller and guys like that forget how hard golf is when you have conflict and you don’t have clarity? Brandel Chamblee made 180 out of 398 cuts on the PGA Tour (in his playing days). Like, when did this become so easy for him? That’s like 43 per cent. You’re talking about a guy who’s missed six cuts in his life. It’s just sensational. That’s what they do.” Wow.

Talk about thin-skinned.
