I will probably get blasted for even posing this question, because it seems unimaginable for some people to think Tiger Woods, or any golfer would even take steroids. But before you decide to throw me into the fire, just think about some of the things that have gone on for the last few years. Some of it adds up to some suspicious thoughts about him and his sudden decline.
Before we learned about Tiger’s infidelity and his penance for waitresses and dirty talk, there was a gradual but noticeable transformation of Tiger. He was getting more and more in shape and starting to look like a baseball or even football player to some degree, even his former swing coach Hank Haney has made comments about his desire to lift weights. I know, lifting weights does immediately lead to steroids, but think about the fact he was treated by a doctor who was tied to steroids and human growth hormone.
Then couple this information with his seemingly new-found desire to become stronger and his bigger appetite for women. Some of this kind of sounds like he was feeling the effects of HGH, and then he wanted to train with the Navy Seals. Now, maybe he just wanted to be the most physically fit golfer on the circuit, but when you think about all of this together, it starts to look suspicious.
Lastly, he has been fighting a laundry list of injuries for what has seemed like the last four or five years. Some of them make sense, but some seem out of nowhere for a guy who has seemingly taken care of himself and is a total health nut. Once again…I know the injuries, do not lead to past steroid or HGH use, but looking at the big picture, it kind of makes sense.
Tiger Woods has been obsessed with his game since he joined the PGA Tour, and he has basically been anointed the title of greatest golfer of all time and it was a forethought he would break every record imaginable. Maybe this obsession and desire to own every record got to him and he relented and sought some additional help, maybe not, only person who really knows is Tiger.
I don’t know if there are any testing policies, or even any rules against the use of HGH or steroids in the PGA Tour, I am sure there are because every other sport has something. There is no proof he ever did anything and I doubt anything will ever come out otherwise. Tiger Woods has been great for the game of golf and I am sure they will protect him if he did do something. As I said before, I have heard no proof he ever did, I haven’t seen any evidence, I am just basing an opinion off what changes I noticed when I looked at it closely.
It would be a shame to think Tiger maybe took something to enhance his game and in turn it ended up being the one thing which kept him from setting the records he has chased so intently during his career.Please be sure to follow me on Twitter and Facebook
