Rex,

Doesn't that steroid-pushin' quack that calls himself a "Doc" (and Tiger's specialist) reside in Toronto?

Anyhow, I won't be seduced by the perfumed inner thigh of any more TW stories.

so he's using the hospital now to meet with his strippers? sounds like a Soprano move!

This looks like an excerpt from a highschool journalism class.

That's a good point, I knew he was from Canadia, but I wasn't sure about Toronto so I didn't make the connection.

I'm way to lazy to go look it up.

As my secretary's mildly amusing, bonafide redneck husband says, "Tiger doesn't know whether to **** or wind his watch." Or, "Come here from sic'em."

Deep, man.

Woods doesn't matter anymore, healthy or not.

You'd think the media would have moved on. We keep getting articles about him. Why?

We already know everything there is to know about him, his father, his ex, his swing.

There is nothing that a columnist can write about the guy that everyone in American doesn't already know.

How laughable.

Well, there is the article on his golfing niece.

Maybe Cameron Morfit can write a column about her.

I wonder if....?

Tiger has dropped to 14th place.......the lowest he has ever been in his career.........I guess what goes around really comes around....LOL
In a way it is good that he no longer dominates....gives others a chance to shine.

This is one of those stories that proves you can write anything about anyone as long as you have question marks in there. Was that Tiger Woods coming out of the methadone clinic? Was that Tiger Woods with a Nazi flag on the antenna of his car? Was that Tiger Woods going in to see the latest Ramrod Ricky movie?

Tiger is washed -up

I doubt if there is a more superfluous writer on golf than Michael Bamberger. His man-love for Showboat gets evinced in every article.

Bamberger is living proof that the worst sports writers cover golf. Michael, you're a boring, limp-wristed hack.

No-- but it was Eldrick limping into the PURPLE HELMET club and coming out with two blondes...

Pure comedy genius.

Not much of a surprise. Tiger had his previous "Canadian connection" in PED guru Tony Galea.

Frankly, his extreme lean upper body development on legs that aren't built to handle that bulk probably is part of his problem. It's a reasonable hypothesis that he was using some non-sporting therapy in building all that bulk ... the types of "therapy" that contribute to weak tendons. HGH and steroid use is consistent with the lean mass building and weak tendons.

We know Tiger liked to use PEDs in bed. My guess is that Tiger not only got used Ambien, but also beta-blockers ... which would help explain the decline in his short putting if he is no longer using either. No more Ambien or beta-blockers would contribute to shaky nerves ... not good for short putts.

For all the focus on Lance Armstrong these days, the circumstantial evidence that Tiger was both a user and now a victim of HGH and other PEDs is significant. Of course, the single most significant piece of evidence is his acknowledged relationship with Galea when he had access the finest legal doctors in the world.

But if you look at his physical development and subsequent decline after the PGA instituted testing and his Ambien usage was disclosed, it paints a picture of a golfer who apparently was gaining a pharmaceutical edge for years - both in the power game and the short game.

Interesting point. You know Tim Finchem, instead of doing his job, shields Woods. The guy and his doctor should be investigated by the PGA and the government. But, it will never happen. The media and Finchem don't want to have the only thing going for them taken away.
What would they do if Woods came out like Armstrong or Bonds.

I can see Brandel Chamblee crying already.
