Tiger Woods swinging with idea of coaching himself

One of the greatest golfers of all-time continues to be one of the greatest spectacles to follow as well.

The 14-time major winner is currently rehabilitating a back injury, which required surgery in March.

The injury held Woods to just 25 rounds of competitive golf this year.

The 38-year-old, who has battled injuries since 2010, seemingly found a scapegoat last month in his Canadian swing coach Sean Foley.

Foley had guided Woods to a successful 2013 that saw him capture five PGA Tour titles and be named the PGA Tour Player of the Year for 11th time.

Now, Woods could be done with swing coaches all together.

In a blog posted Thursday on his website, Woods wrote that he is in no rush to find a replacement for Foley, saying, "I may just do it on my own." Woods went on to write that there is "no hard-and-set rule" on his decision, and he's keeping his options "very, very open."

Woods said he spoke to Notah Begay III, a friend and former Stanford teammate, to get advice on how to approach the 2015 season, but did not offer any specific options the two discussed.

Woods, who has said his back is feeling stronger, is hoping to begin swinging the club later this month. But his top goal is to get healthy before really pushing himself, and has set no timetable for finding a replacement for Foley.

If Woods decides to coach himself, it would not be the first time he's decided to go it alone. Prior to hiring Foley, Woods was without a swing coach for several months after parting with Hank Haney in 2010.
