(ESPN.com)–Tiger Woods said on his website Monday that he has parted ways with Sean Foley, his swing coach for the past four years.

“I’d like to thank Sean for his help as my coach and for his friendship,” Woods said on tigerwoods.com. “Sean is one of the outstanding coaches in golf today, and I know he will continue to be successful with the players working with him. With my next tournament not until my World Challenge event at Isleworth in Orlando [in December], this is the right time to end our professional relationship.”

Woods, who is sidelined with a back injury, said he doesn’t have a timetable for hiring a new coach. He began working with Foley at the 2010 PGA Championship.

Foley was the third coach Woods hired as a professional. He left Butch Harmon in 2003 and began working with Hank Haney a year later. He parted with Haney in the spring of 2010 when Woods returned from the scandal in his personal life.
