On Monday Tiger Woods announced a split with swing coach Sean Foley.

Woods began his relationship with Foley at the 2010 PGA Championship. Working together, Woods won nine times since 2011 but failed to capture a major. Woods also missed four majors due to injury over that same time span.

With Foley gone, former coaches Butch Harmon and Hank Haney will undoubtedly be mentioned as replacements for a potential reunion.

Harmon was Tiger's coach from 1993 to 2003 when Woods won eight of his fourteen majors. Harmon has said he is not interested in reuniting with Woods. Harmon is busy coaching Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler among others and has a golf school in Las Vegas.

Despite what Harmon says, he is a 7/4 favorite to be Tiger Woods next swing coach.

The other candidates to become Tiger's fourth swing coach are Chuck Cook (9/2), David Leadbetter (8/1), Hank Haney (10/1) and Jim McLean (10/1).

Woods has said there is no timetable for hiring a new coach as he recovers from another back injury.
