Tiger Woods asks coach Sean Foley to look at his swing during PGA Championship practice round

Tiger_400 Two days after wrapping up a disastrous showing at the Bridgestone Invitational and two days before the start of the final major of the year, Tiger Woods asked Sean Foley to look at his swing during Tuesday's practice round at the PGA Championship, according to the Canadian-born swing coach.

Foley stood behind and in front of Woods to videotape his swing on two holes at Whistling Straits in Haven, Wis.

When asked if he was working with Woods, Foley replied, “I wouldn't say that. But the possibility is there.”

Woods played with Hunter Mahan and Sean O'Hair, two of Foley's clients. The same thing happened at the Players Championship in May, with Foley joining Woods and prompting speculation of a new swing coach for Woods.

Soon after, Woods and Hank Haney, Woods' swing coach since 2004, parted ways.

On Tuesday Foley left the group after nine holes to spend time with another client, Stephen Ames.
