PARAMUS, N.J. (AP) — Tiger Woods is leaving swing coach Sean Foley after four years and no majors.

Woods said on his website Monday he will no longer work with Foley. Woods has had back trouble the last year and is taking the next three months to get stronger.

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.

Woods began working with Foley at the 2010 PGA Championship.
