Sean Foley has been coming under tremendous scrutiny recently, as Tiger Woods' progress with his new swing seems to be a two-steps-forward, one-step-backward process. But it's not just the barrage of tweets from Tiger's former teacher, Hank Haney, that is getting a lot of attention. It's also an all-out frontal attack from the anti-Stack & Tilt forces out there among a number of golf instructors. Foley says his skin is thicker than an alligator's, but calling him Stack & Quack would be hard for anyone to take.

There are some common threads between Stack & Tilt and Foley's swing philosophy, and Tiger is definitely more centered throughout his swing under Foley's tutelage. But to say that Foley teaches the method as advocated by Mike Bennett and Andy Plummer is not accurate.
