Yesterday, Tiger Woods tweeted this:
Happy to have Chris Como consulting and working with me on my swing. I’m excited to be back competing.

Now the golf world is wondering, who the heck is Chris Como? We have learned that Chris Como was introduced to Tiger by Notah Begay III. There had been some rumors that Notah himself was going to be Tiger’s swing coach but that is obviously not the case.
So, what do we know about Chris Como? In the past, he has coached Aaron Baddeley, Trevor Immelman and Jamie Lovemark. Honestly, I think Aaron Baddeley has a very smooth and beautiful swing and I would like to see Tiger go with this type of swing. Hopefully, this is the type of swing we will see from Tiger in 2015 and beyond:
Note that Trevor Immelman is a major championship winner so it is not like Chris Como has not worked with golfers that have won big tournaments. That said, I have no idea if Como was coaching Immelman when he won the Masters in 2008. It is highly unlikely because Chris Como looks like a younger guy and he is just now getting his masters degree in biomechanics.

After reading the Hank Haney book I can tell you that Chris Como is going to have a much different life as the coach of Tiger Woods. Also, do not think that he is going to be making tons of money. I do believe Hank Haney was only paid $50,000 or $60,000 a year for coaching Tiger Woods. He received a bonus for every major championship Tiger won but that salary seems a little low for coaching someone that makes about $50 million a year in endorsements alone; maybe I am wrong.
