Annie Park of Levittown, the national class teenage golfer who plays a world-class tournament schedule, might eventually have something in common with the world's No. 1 player. Her coach in Florida is Sean Foley, a young teacher whose name has surfaced as a possible replacement for Hank Haney as Tiger Woods' swing coach.

        Foley is based in Orlando and has followed Woods in practice rounds, not as his instructor but as a friend of friends. He coaches Sean O'Hair, who sometimes practices with Tiger.

        In a profile last year in LI Golfbeat, Park said her swing feels "freer" after having worked with Foley and that her driving distance improved remarkably.

        If there is anything Woods needs it is help with, it is his game off the tee. Under Butch Harmon, he was less prone to wild shots.
