Tiger Woods is in the market for a new coach after announcing on his website that he has parted ways with Sean Foley after four years.

The 14-time major champion Woods says he has not made any decisions regarding a new coach and has no timetable to do so.

I’d like to thank Sean for his help as my coach and for his friendship,” Woods said on his website. “Sean is one of the outstanding coaches in golf today, and I know he will continue to be successful with the players working with him. With my next tournament not until my World Challenge event at Isleworth in Orlando, this is the right time to end our professional relationship.”

Woods and Foley began their work together back at the PGA Championship back in 2010 at Whistling Straits and now, somewhat fittingly, the relationship ends following this year’s PGA where Woods missed the cut.

“My time spent with Tiger is one of the highlights of my career so far, and I am appreciative of the many experiences we shared together,” Foley said in the website statement. “It was a lifelong ambition of mine to teach the best player of all time in our sport. I am both grateful for the things we had the opportunity to learn from one another, as well as the enduring friendship we have built. I have nothing but respect and admiration for him.”

One of Foley’s other students, Hunter Mahan, won The Barclays over the weekend.
