Those of you that think Tiger is on steroids....

A "normal" picture of Tiger for you guys that insist the pros are "big" guys on the tour. Looks pretty regular sized to me...

The guy is in fantastic shape, even better for a guy pushing 40. I never thought he was on steroids, he never had the Barry Bonds or Mark Mcgwire head.

He looks small when he's next to Lindsey. Most of those guys are somewhere in the average to small range. I recall seeing pics of Phil after he won the Open when he visited Callaway Golf. He looks a little "loose" on TV but compared to the Callaway execs he was a rail and they weren't huge or anything.

I read he has a track in his back yard where he runs 40 yd dashes.  That is a serious fitness freak.

He's not really buff and personally aggressive, like most people on steroids. Apparently, he has not lost his sex drive, either.

 

So, no, I do not think Tiger is on steroids.

Woods has always had skinny legs. Vonn, well, she hurtles down mountains in excess of 130kph, her legs are trunks.

Vonn needs those legs when your constantly in a squat. I am always amazed at that sport.

 

No, I don't think Tiger is on Steroids.

Downhill is insane. I go 1/2 those speeds and I'm peeing my bib.

I'd love to be downhill skiing, but there is no snow on the ground here in So. Cal.

 

Mammoth claims to have opened Eagle Lodge, but I'm sure the runs will only be good for a couple days.

 

That's why I golf, only thing you can do all year round here.

Tiger's legs (and mine) are one of the topics I've talked with him about. He was envious. I'd heard before that he is not a fan of his calves (or lack thereof), but whaddyagonnado?

You're not wearing the bib properly.

LOL! You sir have a great memory. But this is proof that I can do all the calf raises I want and still be stuck with baby legs. If Tiger cant fix it, then I sure as hell cant. LOL

Lol. I think we all though of you, I know I did, when we saw that pic.

You spoke with Tiger Woods? Do tell... :-D  I'm guessing he tried lots of leg work to no avail?

Yeah. I'm usually at The Memorial.

I'mma go all out here..

 

You do realize the picture OP provided is a picture taken in 2013, correct? Most people I've met that believe Tiger Woods doped took it from his years in 2009. Why? Well we look at the break up from his cheating game, which many have credited to a thing called "roid rage". Was it actually roid rage, possibly. What would provoke the great Tiger Woods to cheat on his wife? Sure, he's got social problems and is really intense, but he worked all his life to get where he is. He's a smart guy and wouldn't do it on his own.

 

Here is a picture of Woods at the 2009 Ryder Cup

Look at those guns! Sure, he could have hit the gym and bulked up. I wouldn't put it past a guy like Tiger to push himself to the limit, but bulking up that much, that fast?

 

Take a look at Tiger in 2008.

I tried to find an image that was in proportion with the one in 2009. Here we see Tiger still has a lot of muscle, I mean, look at that bicep! But he's nothing close to the '09 Ryder Cup picture. But than again, he could have bulked up. 

 

However, the proof is in 2007. Being a baseball writer it's not an unusual thing to investigate a steroid scandal, and we usually see the same thing. Although the player admits to doping a year before their stats boosted through the roofs, they started gaining large amount of muscle 2-3 years before we could actually see a massive change. For Tiger, you can see the same exact thing. Look below.

Look at that! Is it really possible to go from the state he is in from that picture, to like he was in 2007 without the roids? Anybody who works out, may it be with your own or with a trainer, knows it takes just 6 months to show effect of some noticeable muscle. There's no physical way a guy like the '06 Tiger can go become the '08 Tiger on his own. 

 

Rewind one more year, in 2006. Take a final look at Tigers stature. What do you see? 

Deflated shoulders, man boobs, fat arms, and a little tummy going there. That's a MASSIVE jump to a buff ripped guy we see in 2008 and even 2007. Sure, Tiger probably looked at himself in the mirror one day and said "What the hell have I become" and went to work out. However, influences from buddies like Michael Jordan without a doubt suggested doping a little bit. "Man, it'll make it so much easier!"

 

I'm not saying it's a 100 percent given, but it's pretty damn obvious he doped. He tore his knee up from the crap, and changed his entire body in less than a year. I'm sorry, it's just no possible. We can say for sure he's not doping anymore because just compare the pictures! He looks like a regular, buff golfer. In '08, and even to 2011 and possibly 2012, he couldn't play for crap. Well, he could, afterall he's Tiger Woods, but nothing like he used to. Old age? Maybe. But steroids surely played a part in the knee injury, and everything we saw.
