    Apparently the PGA doesn’t realize the longer they cover this up, the worse it’s gonna get…not that it’s not already terrible.

    How do you account for Rory adding 10lbs of muscle in 3 weeks?

    Did anyone else want to throw up when Steve Williams said he would caddie again for Tiger if he asked him to? I couldn’t believe what I was hearing.

    Tiger Woods paid Anthony Galea $76K for 14 visits, new book says
    By Pete Madden, Senior Producer, Golf.com- July 08, 2014
    Tiger Woods has not won a major championship since undergoing knee surgery in 2008.
    A new book about New York Yankees’ third baseman Alex Rodriguez’s use of performance-enhancing drugs throughout his career includes revelations about another sports superstar: Tiger Woods.
    …….. Blood Sport: Alex Rodriguez, Biogenesis and the Quest to End Baseball’s Steroid Era, co-authored by Tim Elfrink of the Miami New Times and Gus-Garcia Roberts of Newsday, claims that the Canadian sports doctor Anthony Galea who treated Rodriguez also visited Woods 14 times between January and August 2009 and charged Woods a total of $76,012 as he recovered from knee surgery following his 2008 U.S. Open victory. Previous reports had identified only four or five visits.
    In 2011, Galea pled guilty to smuggling human growth hormone and other drugs into the United States to treat professional athletes. Both Woods and Galea have said that Woods only received only legal platelet-rich plasma therapy from Galea.
    The book also reports that according to the Florida Department of Health, Dr. Mark Lindsay, an associate of Galea’s who also treated Rodriguez, visited Woods’ 49 times from September 2008 to October 2009 and charged Woods’ $118,979.
    From late 2008 through 2009, when Woods was facing the worst injury of his career and Rodriguez was sidelined with a lingering hip problem, they sometimes talked abut the cutting-edge techniques of the two Canadian physicians treating both of them at the same time: Anthony Galea and Mark Lindsay.
    Hank Haney, Woods’ former swing coach, who has been one of Woods’ most vocal critics since they stopped working together in 2010, told the Golf Channel that he never saw anything out of the ordinary in Galea’s treatment of Woods.
    “I was there and watched the whole procedure,” Haney said. “There was never anything that went into Tiger Woods’s body that didn’t come out of his body. They take blood out, they spin it, they inject the plasma back in. I totally believe that Tiger Woods has never taken any performance-enhancing drugs.”

      Girly boy haters club? We don’t hate girly boys. You’re welcome to post here any time! 🙂

      I’m not sure of what point your jumbled comment is supposed to be making. Are you claiming Haney stands by his original comments prior to Blood Sport’s release?

      If so, you haven’t been paying attention. The day Blood Sport was released, I contacted Hank Haney asking about the discrepancy. He didn’t respond, but a few hours later, Golf Digest posted a response to the information from the book (the information I originally pointed out on the Internet) from Haney. Haney, at that time admitted, “Who knows?” Clearly he was washing his hands of Woods. Either Haney was lying when he said four or five visits or else Woods hid the other visits from Haney.

      Anyway, we have nothing against girly men. In fact, if you read our 19th Hole Pillow Fight article, you’d know this website owes its continuing existence to a “girly boy.” (I don’t think he’ll complain about being labeled “girly boy” — but I would not advise using that term around his husband!)

      Haney also claimed he knew nothing of Tiger’s numerous affairs, so he ain’t too relevant…

    Tiger has spotty morals and a self inflicted bad rap. But the dude is like 6’1 and only weighs 180 pounds. He is fit and slim. He hardly looks like someone on PEDS. Arid on the other hand is just a smiget taller and over 230 lbs. look at Barry Bonds, Brock Lesnar, etc. How would PEDS even help in golf? If they want to test golfers for chemicals that would seriously render an unfair advantage then test for substances that calm nerves under pressure.

    • lannyh says:

      Steroids are not just for building the size of muscles. Lance Armstrong was hardly Arnold S. A marathon runner weighing 92 lbs was busted for steroids. They help in many ways, some of which are delineated in the PGA Tour’s Drug Policy manual. The idea that “steroids don’t help in golf” was once the prevailing attitude in baseball.

        Lanny,
        I’m still waiting for you to weigh in on the recent feud between TW and Dan Jenkins. I know your going to have lots to say. I’ll be watching with bated breath for your thoughts and insight.

      • lannyh says:

        I wrote a couple of comments at CBS, but I don’t have much to say. You probably already know I’m a huge fan of Jenkins (I read his new book “His Ownself” this year) and that his points about Woods were accurate and fair.
        If anything, I thought Jenkins was too soft. He didn’t mention any of the big stuff. I am glad Jenkins is unafraid to skewer Woods, but why not hit him on Galea and Biogenesis, or the Finchem relationship, or his downgrade in sponsors? That stuff is far more important than whether he leaves decent tips or not.

    It is ironic that tigers over obsession with fitness appears to have made a significant contribution to his body falling apart.

    Most athletes probably train to prolong careers not shorten them. lol

    I wish somebody would bring this story to the forefront already. I’m sick and tired of everyone refusing the acknowledge the hundred pound elephant in the room. Don’t these journalists realize that this story could make their entire careers? They could be the next Bob Woodward or Carl Bernstein. In my opinion this is much bigger than Lance Armstrong or Mark McGwire. We’ve had to choke on all the propaganda for far to long: this is the greatest human specimen to ever walk the earth. Its November and its already started. “Tiger in full practice mode. Leaner and stronger than he ever was”. When its too good to be true it usually is. My heart still goes out to Rocco Mediate. If their was ever a guy who deserved to win a major it was him. Unfortunately it was stolen from him.
