Australians in line to coach Woods

AUSTRALIANS Cameron McCormick and Dale Lynch are among the favourites in the betting market to be Tiger Wood's next coach.

AMONG the betting odds to be Tiger Woods' next coach are two Australians.

With Woods splitting with coach Sean Foley, Cameron McCormick and Dale Lynch have been name-dropped as potential replacements.

According to Australian online betting agency Sportsbet, McCormick and Lynch could be the next coach of the world's most famous golfer.

"Tiger could do a lot worse than go with Dale Lynch, who's mentored the likes of Geoff Ogilvy and Aaron Baddely," said Sportsbet's Christian Jantzen. 

Lynch has been a PGA Tour Accredited Coach since 1999 and was coaching Ogilvy when he won the 2006 US Open.

"Cameron McCormick also has great credentials, having guided rising star Jordan Spieth since he was 12," said Jantzen.

However, the outright favourite is Northern Irishman Michael Bannon. Rory McIlroy's coach since the current world number 1 was eight, Bannon is listed at the shortest odds of $3.75.

 American golf instructor Butch Hamon is another favoutie, but he has already doused those rumours saying Woods doesn't even need a coach.

 "No I would not [coach Woods] and he's not going to call and ask," Harmon told Golf Channel. "I don't think he needs a swing coach."

"If I were advising Tiger, I'd tell him, 'You're the greatest player that ever lived, just go to the range and hit shots."
