Almost a quarter of PGA Tour pros surveyed by Sports Illustrated think Woods took PEDs
Tiger woods emphatically denies that he has ever used performance-enhancing drugs, but almost a quarter of PGA Tour players surveyed by Sports Illustrated don’t believe him. Of 71 PGA Tour players surveyed, 24 percent said Woods “used HGH or other performance-enhancing drugs.” Seventy-six percent said they believed that Woods didn’t take steroids.
Questions about Woods and PEDs arose in late 2009 when a New York Times article linked Woods to Canadian doctor Anthony Galea. The Times said Galea was under criminal investigation in the United States, and that he was suspected of providing performance-enhancing drugs to athletes. At the Masters this month, Woods said that federal investigators had contacted his agent, Mark Steinberg, about the Galea probe, but had not asked to interview him. During that same media conference, Woods unequivocally denied taking any performance-enhancing drugs and said that Galea was treating his left leg after Woods’s knee surgery in 2008.
“(Galea) never gave me HGH or any PEDs. I’ve never taken that my entire life said, “woods”in a report.
‘I have never taken any illegal drug,even for that matter,” Woods said, going on to explain that Galea had given him “platelet-enriched plasma treatments,” a blood-spinning technique that Galea has used on many elite athletes to help them recover from surgery faster. “As you all know, in 2008 I blew out my ACL (anterior cruciate ligament), and part of my reconstruction with my LCL (lateral collateral ligament), it wasn’t reacting properly, it was a little bit stuck. And so I had the PRP injection into my LCL.”
Still ,People have various opinion about Tiger woods steroids rumours.
“Did Tiger do PEDs? There’s no chance,” Williams said. “Love him or hate him, Tiger always respected the game. He knows its history and people, its standing in sports and the world. He always knew what golf did for him personally.
Gary Player, in July 2007, addressing the media at the Open Championship stated that he was aware of two male golf professionals that were used too of legal steroids (indirectly pointing woods) and thought the number could be as high as 10 or much higher.
On,other hand Phil Mickelson at the time had this reaction: “I don’t think there’s even a remote chance that will happen,” he said of a golfer testing positive for steroids.
In the nutshell,30% people believe that for once woods had have steroids but somehow his excellence in his career made his fans believe in him with complete faith.
