Growing up, Sean changed his focus from playing professional golf, to instead becoming a coach for top players. He attended Tennessee State University, and during his time there played with the varsity golf team. In the early 1990s, he started learning more about golf coaching, watching personalities such as David Leadbetter coaching Nick Faldo. He graduated with an Arts degree.
Foley started to develop his instructing style which became well known to many golf personalities, especially his scientific approach to the golf swing, which reportedly combines the coaching styles of weight shift instructors. He developed this style by studying the swings of many players. According to a report, Foley recommends setting up 55 percent of the body weight on the opposite side of your dominant hand, and keeping it that way until the contact with the ball. The style is similar to that of Andy Plummer and Mike Bennett. Justin Rose also mentioned that Foley treats his players as athletes, from a biomechanical point of view.
Soon, Sean would start to coach a number of high profile golf athletes including Stephen Ames, Parker McLachlin, Sean O’Hair, Hunter Mahan and Justin Rose. In 2006, he left the Clublink Academy, and joined the instructors of RevolutionGolf.com, so revealing some of his coaching secrets. Foley would get a lot of attention and increase his net worth significantly through his partnership with Tiger Woods, although in 2010 he denied that he was going to be hired as his coach, although seen helping him during a practice round at the PGA Tournament; the two continued to work together for four years. During the start of the partnership, Woods struggled and had to take some time off due to injury. In 2012, the fruits of his new coach would be seen as he would win three PGA Tour events and was in contention for all the four majors that year. He returned to the World Number 1 Ranking before winning The Players Championship for the second time in his career. They continued to collaborate together until the injury ridden 2014 season for Woods. Sean would then later make a statement that his time with Woods was one of the highlights of his career, and they would continue to be friends. Recently, he’s been focusing on helping Justin Rose improve. He also contributes to the online publication Golf Digest.
