Tiger Woods has parted company with swing coach Chris Como.

Woods made the announcement on his Twitter account early today via a picture of a typed note on his phone.

The pair began working together in 2014 after Woods split with then coach, Canadian Sean Foley.

Little was known about Como prior to Woods hiring him and he has maintained a low profile for the three years he has been working with the former World Number One.

Woods says in the note he has nothing but respect for Como but that he feels he should continue his return to the game on his own terms.

"Since my fusion surgery I have been working hard to relearn my own body and golf swing,” the note says.

“I’ve done this by primarily relying on my feel and previous years of hard work with Chris.

“For now, I think it’s best for me to continue to do this on my own. I’m grateful to Chris Como for his past work, and I have nothing but respect for him.”

There is no suggestion by Woods of a replacement for Como though the 14 time major winner has worked with a coach for the bulk of his career.

Within 20 minutes of Woods posting his announcement Golf Channel’s Rex Hoggard tweeted a statement from Como wishing Woods all the best.

Como says he expects Woods to have an ‘incredible next run in his career’ and that he is ‘extremely excited about Tiger’s future’.
