Tiger Woods has a new pair of eyes looking at his golf swing. On Saturday, Woods tweeted he had found a new golf coach.
The 36-year-old Como is based in Plano, Texas, and was named to Golf Digest’s list of “best young teachers” in 2013. This year, Como was named to Golf Magazine’s “golf innovators” list.
Como says he prefers to think of the golf swing in biomechanical terms, a subject in which he’s nearly finished a Masters degree. He has an interest in debunking long-held theories about the golf swing.
Woods discovered Como through friend and former Stanford roommate Notah Begay III, who was also thought to have been providing some guidance for Woods since firing former coach Sean Foley in August.
“I was introduced to Chris this summer by Notah [Begay], and subsequently we had several good conversations about the golf swing,” Woods said in a release provided by agent Mark Steinberg. “I’ve worked with him about a month since I started practicing. Chris will consult and work with me during the year.”
