3 years ago my golf pro and good friend, Pat Coyner spoke of the wonders of his newest swing guru—Sean Foley. When Tiger and Hank Haney split, the golf world was shocked that Le Tigre hired Sean Foley. Nobody is laughing any more. Tiger is hitting greens in regulation at an amazing clip. But he is not even Foley’s hottest student. that honor belongs to Hunter Mahan, closely followed by Justin Rose!! All three could land in the top 10 this week.
My pick has to be the #1 golfer in the world, Rory McElroy. He thoroughly dominated last year’s tournament until the collapse on #10 on the final day. That won’t happen again.Look for Rory and Hunter Mahan as the final twosome on Sunday.
