Sean Foley and Butch Harmon chat Friday at Whistling Straits

IMG_0846 SHEBOYGAN, Wis. – Moments after the golfers left the practice green this morning, Sean Foley, the man many people assume will become Tiger Woods's next swing coach, walked behind Butch Harmon, Woods's coach for eight years.

"Hey Hollywood!" Harmon called out to Foley, who turned around and smiled under the low brim of his visor.

Foley walked over to Harman and said, "Man, I've got a good one for ya." The two men then lowered their voices and had a five-minute discussion.

They never raised their voices above a whisper, but at one point Harmon put his arm around Foley's shoulder. Harmon is not only in the very unique position to advise Foley on what coaching Tiger Woods is like, but also about effectively coaching several top players at once. His stable includes Phil Mickelson, Nick Watney, Stewart Cink and Dustin Johnson. Foley is currently coaching Sean O'Hair, Hunter Mahan, Justin Rose and Stephen Ames.

As Foley walked toward the clubhouse, Harmon called out to him, "Hey, how about a match with my four versus your four ... and we get to do the announcing. HA!"
