Just days after finishing in a tie for third at the Charles Schwab Challenge, Justin Rose has fired his swing coach Sean Foley, according to the Telegraph.
Rose told the Telegraph that the coronavirus pandemic played a part in the decision to fire his coach.
“I spent the past three months working on my game at home.I made a lot of progress and wanted to keep that momentum going when I returned to competition in Fort Worth. I felt it was a good time to take complete ownership of my swing and game. That idea is something Sean has always wanted for me,” Rose told the paper.
Just a few weeks ago, Rose split with his equipment manufacturer, Honma.
