Viktor Hovland surprised everyone by saying goodbye to his coach, Joe Mayo, even though they had a great year together. Mayo really helped Hovland improve his short game, which was not so good before. From day one, Joe Mayo gave his best to help Hovland improve certain aspects of his game, in order to reach perfection. The Norwegian had a great cooperation with his coach, and it seemed that their cooperation would last for years ahead of us. However, it seems that there were certain things between them that are less known to the common golf fan.
This decision shocked fans because Hovland became the fourth-best player in the world with Mayo's help. Although Hovland didn't explain why, Mayo's coaching using Trackman made a big difference right away. Immediately at the start, one could notice the progress of the Norwegian.
Viktor Hovland and his future: What are the young golfer's plans?
It made Hovland more confident, and he won three PGA Tour events and the FedEx Cup. As Hovland gets ready for the first tournament of the season in Hawaii, it's not clear if he has a new coach yet.

The question arises: How much will this split affect Hovland and whether this great golfer will go in the wrong direction? The next few months will best tell us what Hovland's plans are. Many believe that it is necessary to find a coach as soon as possible. Viktor is one of the best golfers in the world who has the potential to make great results.
