Tiger Woods practices for PGA as swing coach watches

Updated, 1:21 p.m.

In the perhaps-it's-about-time department, Tiger Woods is working under the watchful eye of a swing coach as he prepares for the PGA Championship, which begins Thursday at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wis.

Sean Foley, who has worked with Hunter Mahan, Sean O'Hair, Stephen Ames among others, is not Woods' coach. He said that Woods, who finished in a tie for 78th in the Bridgestone tournament last weekend, asked him to take a look at his swing during a practice round for the PGA. He stood near Woods and recorded his swing.

"I wasn't do anything with him today," Woods said of the relationship in a press conference. "He was watching Hunter and Sean and I did ask him to film a couple [swings and said] I'd like to take a look at it...which i did look. So I'm heading in the right direction. I'm very excited about that."

Woods and Foley both acknowledged that working together in the future is a possibility.

Asked about the possibility of not qualifying for the Ryder Cup team and forcing captain Corey Pavin to decide whether to use one of four picks on him, Woods said he'd accept being a pick but, "Hopefully I won't be a pick. I'd like to play myself onto that team."
