New Tiger Woods Coach Chris Como Is 37, Graduate Student
Chris Como became one of the most famous golf coaches on the planet on Saturday when Tiger Woods announced that he hired him as a swing "Consultant." Only the hardest of hardcore golf nerds knew who Como was before Tiger announced the hire. That's basically all that the golf world knows about Como, and some people around the game are leery that this is the right move for Tiger. He said Como is, "Way worse than , way too technical. This guy will try to get Tiger a putting coach, a statistician, a green reading guy, etc. It's his worse choice ever. He can turn a guy from an athlete into a golf geek." Jason Sobel noted on Morning Drive that Tiger's biggest weakness right now is accuracy off the tee, yet the three PGA players Como has worked with all finished outside the top-135 in driving accuracy. There's intense debate in the golf community about what is wrong with Tiger. Tiger has been working with Como for a month after his friend Notah Begay introduced them over the summer, according to USA Today. Based on Como's background, some are speculating that Tiger could be headed for a few more swing tweaks in order to prevent further injury to his back.
