Like tennis ace Nick Kyrgios, Cam Davis is living proof that going solo in world sport's other most global of individual pursuits isn't such a bad thing.
Davis has returned home to Sydney for this week's Australian Open golf championship coachless, but with fond memories of his watershed 2017 triumph on the same course and off the back of the best year of his flourishing career.
After missing five straight cuts on the PGA Tour in early 2023, few pundits could have tipped the 28-year-old to crack the world's top 50 and boast a tie for sixth at the The Players' Championship and a joint-fourth at the PGA Championship - all without a coach.
Davis, though, hasn't looked back since splitting with long-time mentor and former PGA National coach of the year Kahn Pullen, who is now working with LPGA Tour prodigy Grace Kim.
"We haven't been working together for most of this year now," the US-based Davis said on Tuesday.
While he may pick a new coach down the track, Davis, like 2022 Wimbledon finalist Kyrgios, is happy enough problem solving himself.
The world No.43 could hardly be happier with where his game is at as he strives to replicate his Open victory of six years ago at The Australian when famously ran down Jason Day with a final-round 64.
"In terms of consistency, right now I'm probably in the middle of the best run of golf I think I've ever played, in terms of week after week," Davis said.
"Since the beginning of the (FedExCup) playoffs and just before the playoffs this year, I've played some really good golf.
"So I'm hoping that trend leads to another trophy out here, but last time it was a pretty out of the blue week for me.
"I was coming off probably the worst season of golf I've ever had and first year as a pro.
"It was not a great 2017 for me until I came here and all of a sudden I turned in some of of my best scores I've ever had in tournaments. Hopefully we can find some more magic."
Davis tied for seventh at last week's Australian PGA Championship at Royal Queensland, his sixth top-10 finish of the year.
