Skip to comments.Tiger Woods on Steroids?: You Be The Judge
Posted on 12/15/2009 6:01:25 PM PST by Frantzie
We thought the worst for Tiger was behind him, or, at the very least, that no closet was big enough to hold any more skeletons.
Looks like we were wrongremember, Tiger owns more than a few houses, and more than a few closets.
Behind door numberwhich one are we on now?is the revelation that the doctor who treated Woods after his knee injury has been indicted in a doping scandal by the FBI, and is accused of treating athletes with steroids.

Thanks for posting this.
I think that Woods is on steroids as well.
The latest articles on Woods connect him to a doctor that is notorious for blood doping, steroids and other illegal activities.
I believe you.
Doesn’t prove anything; he could have simply beefed up with a dedicated workout routine...it is worth investigating however.
He’s also pug fugly. He’s the black Howdy Doody.
Money works wonders for unattractive ass hats.
The doctor is connected to former linebacker Bill Romanowski who was a major steroid user.
He beat up another player and the guy went to the hospital and he sued Romanowski for $3.4 million.
In 2003, Romanowski attacked and injured one of his teammates, Marcus Williams, during a scrimmage. Williams, a backup tight end for the Oakland Raiders, was forced to retire after Romanowski confronted Williams after a play, ripped off his helmet, and crushed his eye socket with a punch. Williams sued for damages of $3.4 million, arguing that Romanowski had been suffering from “roid rage” when he attacked him. This argument was later rejected by the judge on the grounds that Williams could not prove that Romanowski had actually used steroids on the same day as the attack. Williams was awarded $340,000. Williams was quoted as saying he and his lawyers “just wanted to prove what was right and wrong about football”.
Yesterdays hero, todays sleez. How quickly things change.
Looks like the only one he did not pay for was the hapless, mentally simple (her sister said so) and not very attractive pancake waitress.
With all those women he’s been servicing, I thought “performance enhancing drugs” might mean something else.
The slideshow indicates he didn’t start bulking up until the last three years or so. He was still the world’s best golfer before then.
barry bonds bump
Damn. You’re right. Technically, he even bought his wife. I’ve said it a hundred times, if he was a used car salesman and Elen worked at the local Dairy Queen she wouldn’t have given him the time of day. People used to give me hell when I said that...before this stuff broke.
Don’t steroids mess around with a guy’s twig and berries, and not in a good way?
Why the Hell would someone need steroids in golf?
I’m not sure Woods was juicing. Tiger was winning tournaments with inferior equipment. He is just a phenom.
Well, yeah, that’s what I thought. Question, though, is steroids agin the law for golfers? Just curious.
Seriously? who cares? You cant just take steroids and “get big”. you still have to have proper nutrition and diet to make it work. On the flip side, it is perfectly legal and accepted to get breast implants, calf implants, botox, augmentation surgery, liposuction, etc.... i am tired of hearing about steroids. most juice users are health nuts, whereas most of the other cosmetic surgery people don’t do a dam thing about their health and expect a magic pill or surgery. legalize it and put it under doctors control.
FROM THE ARCHIVE MONDAY, APRIL 14TH 1997: IN THE chill of evening, as fresh winds brushed the pines of Augusta National, Tiger Woods realised his destiny yesterday by becoming the first black player to win the US Masters. And as we watched a record-shattering performance, there was an awareness of something very special of a talent that may not be matched for another generation.
If admiration is to be measured by the status of the admirer, then Jack Nicklaus captured the essence of an astonishing achievement. Tiger is out there playing another game, said the six-times winner of this title. Hes playing a golf course hell own for a long time.
One suspects he will also retain possession of some remarkable scoring figures. As if playing to order, he sank a four-foot par putt on the last green to card the 69 he needed for an 18-under-par aggregate of 270 one stroke inside the target set by Nicklaus in 1965 and matched by Raymond Floyd on the old Bermuda greens 11 years later.
His 12-shot margin over second-placed Tom Kite, was also a record three strokes better than Nicklaus managed 32 years ago. At 21, he became the youngest winner of the title, surpassing the achievement of 23-year-old Seve Ballesteros in 1980. And, of course , he is the first black winner of a major championship.
On a broader basis, the only player to surpass his margin of victory was Old Tom Morris, and that was way back in the 1862 British Open, which he won by 13 strokes. More realistically, in the four majors this century, nobody has secured a margin in double figures.
Frantzie ... what else do you do?
Getting to the green in 2 strokes, consistently, is tiring.
Steroids help your muscles recover faster, would definitely give anybody an edge, especially in multi-day tournaments.
I have seen men get much bigger and quicker naturally, that slide show proves nothing. i used to work with a fellow who was in natural only body building competitions who got much bigger than woods in a much shorter amount of time.
Yes. Testicles the size of an English pea. Not to mention a dimunition in the metrics of his member.
LOL! Is this Nike, Gillette and other sponsor employees night. The fan boys keep supporting the adulterer and juicer.
Yeah right. His Nike equipment is all hand made and not the Nike crap they sell in the store. Supposedly his real irons are total copies of Titleist 755 irons.
You're right. All over the world, supermodels are married to good-looking used car salesmen with no money. They're poor, but happy.
The PGA rules say no juicing. It you are doing ROIDs then you are cheating but to a person like you it is a “who cares” issue.
Tiger is so much like Obama. Tiger fan boys are so much like Obama voters.
No...that would be cheating!
Good question, triple E.
Perhaps he was taking the roids for all of that Putt Putt he was playing with those young girls.
You just proved that men age from years 18 to 33. Congratulations. Some of us choose to work out and take care of ourselves during all of or part of that time, others don’t. I went from being a long hair to short hair to bald during those same year as well as gaining pounds along the way. Wait till you find out what happens during your forties, especially if you choose not to work out.
Do you have any evidence at all whatsoever that he has ever used any PEDs? Oh, I see. A slide show showing a 33 year old athlete more muscular than his 18 year old self. Who could have doubted. Jumping to conclusions, wildly divergent from reality, because your prejudices lead you that way? Who's like Obama again?
I was just in your state doing a business deal which will be very sweet. 2009 sucks because of Obamaa but I have created more opportunities this year than I ever have.
If I had time to go to the gym I could look better then him in a month. The forearms are impossible without steroids.
This is the longest hitter on the golf tour. The guy is as strong as a bull but those are golf gym forearms and biceps.
Quiros “He has topped the driving distance list the past two seasons in Europe and is averaging 315.56 yards this season.”
Tiger averages about 299.
No fan of Tiger. Cant stand golf. This issue just bothers me. nobody has a problem with the lazy way of modifying their body, but the thought of ROIDS which takes hard work gets people in a tizzy.
‘Roid and rHGH use have other problems as well. My business partner used to play NFL, had seen Lyle Azado, a major juicer at the time, and nuts. Azado later got brain cancer which he attributed to being on the juice.
Not on the PGA Tour.
In my example it would be pretty stupid for a super model to be working at Dairy Queen...wouldn’t it Einstein?
2 years ago Gary Player said that he had knowledge of pro golfers on HGH,
Gary Player insisted today that he would not expose two professional golfers who he claims told him they had used performance-enhancing drugs. The South African legend stirred controversy at the British Open in July when he claimed that two pros told him they had used human growth hormone. Several top golfers including his countrymen, Ernie Els and Retief Goosen quickly dismissed Player’s claims of drug abuse in golf, but the PGA Tour quickly announced that drug testing would begin in 2008.
In an exclusive interview with Golf.com from Austin, Texas, on Tuesday morning, Player says the two golfers in question had come to him for advice. “They said, ‘We’d like to discuss this with you but would give us your solemn word that you will never discuss this with anybody?” the 72-year-old, nine-time major championship winner said. “And I said, ‘Yes, I give you my word.’ And they said, “Well, we tried these growth hormones. What do you think?’ And I said, ‘I think you shouldn’t [use them] in my opinion.’ I said, ‘It can only do you harm. Athletes are dying all around the world like flies. Don’t dare try any of this.’”
Since making his explosive claims at this summer’s British Open in Carnoustie, Scotland, Player has refused to name the players or even say where his conversations with them took place. “Imagine me turning around and giving up those names,” Player said today. “Those guys would be crucified for the rest of their lives.”
His comments were widely dismissed by golf’s biggest stars, several of whom claimed Player ought to name names or shut up. “If he wants to damage the sport by starting to say things like that, then he must come out and say it,” snapped Goosen, a two-time U.S. Open winner. “He mustn’t make these half comments.”
Today Player said Goosen “didn’t fully understand the situation” and that he had spoken up for the good of the game. “I’m trying to make sure that golf stays a clean sport,” Player said. “I feel that I’m able to contribute by bringing this out.”
Player also said today that nine separate doctors have advised him to take human growth hormones (HGH) to gain strength. He said one physician in Jacksonville, Fla., advised both him and New Zealand golfer Bob Charles to begin taking HGH. Player said he and Charles were together when the doctor made the recommendation, and both men dismissed it. “
I am older than Tiger in pretty good shape and have all my hair because I was smart enough to start Rogaine when I was younger. Taking care of myself and also being smart. The Gillette commercial without his shirt is not that impressive. In a month at the gym - I could meet or surpass all of that except the forearms. No one in golf has forearms like that. HGH.
I may just start doing it but have been very busy.
But highly intelligent to be working as a nanny, of course.
For extra strength. Being stronger is an advantage if the ball is deep rough. If your not strong enough, the grass grabs the club face and twists the club resulting in a bad shot.
“Question, though, is steroids agin the law for golfers? Just curious.”
I don’t know where the PGA comes down on that. Certainly taking presecription medication without the prescription is illegal. It might also be that even with a prescription it’s illegal if you’re doing it for non-medical-related reasons.
Bulking up to impress chicks won’t cut it.
“If you get real massive, you’ll bag that wench.” The Greaseman
If she’d been black and poor he wouldn’t have given her the time of day, either.
If you were a woman, would you like to marry a used car salesman or a professional golfer?
A sign holder or a professional chef?
A McDonald’s counter guy or a law student?
A bus driver or a man runs his own photography studio?
What a man does says a lot about what a man is. Industrious, hard working, self-disciplined, ambitious, intelligent? Or lazy, clueless, tempermental, stupid, or manipulative?
Of course you want a hard-working, intelligent man.
What sort of man would you like your daughter to marry?
I thought Azado died from carcinoma of the liver. Perhaps mets to the brain, or I may simply fail at memory.
No dog in the hunt, but the fact that his doctor has just been popped for juicing athletes, that Tiger took months off right before they started testing for steroids, combined with the massive growth in a short period of time, plus increased stories about erratic behavior creates legitimate suspicion.
That’s funny. Comparing a boob job to performance enhancing drugs in sports. I guess in a twisted way, boob jobs are performance enhancing as well.
One teensy little difference, though, is that I’m pretty sure that the ‘league’ Tiger plays in, the PGA, has rules against steroids.
The brain cancer did him in. The HGH Azado was using was also from a very questionable source.
Using the juice is short term gain only. I have noticed in my sport (bicycle racing) that juicers are “flash in the pan”, here today gone tomorrow. Athletes who train intelligently and use natural supplementation (amino acid combinations) to boost the body’s own mechanisms can achieve the same results. It does take a bit longer, and more work, but the benefits are much longer term without the ill effects. One example is Kent Bostick, formerly of Team Shaklee, and still a strong road rider in his mid 50’s.
If you really want to see the long term effects of the juice, look at some of the East German athletes. Healthwise they are basket cases.
