About 10 years ago... my dentist was arrested for Domestic Violence for beating his wife.


You know how much that had to do with me? About as much as Dr. Galea and Tiger.


Who cares? it's been stated multiple times, this has absolutely no connection to Tiger, and all treatments and proceedures he underwent were leagal and standardized.

as Erik said, dont sensationalize.

Going back to my prior post, not everything was legal, the doctor isn't licensed, and never was licensed, to practice in the states and it is well documented tiger received treatment in Florida. So no, not everything was legal. This begs the question, If it is such a standard procedure, why have a doctor from canada fly to florida to perform it, when he isn't even licensed? I think that is the question a lot of people want answered.

great point. I'm new to the blood spinning thing. But it seems like any qualified US doctor could perform the procedure?

I'll do it...Maybe TW was looking for an edge in high tech HGH to knock it off the tee farther...his short game is the best probably of all time, so maybe he was searching for an edge in distance off the tee??? If he is pounding 300 yard drives with some "help" and then the irons and short game take over he's unstoppable (obviously). Just my dumb hypothesis.

the fact that the best golfer in the world had flown him in 4 times for treatment lends to 2 possibilities,

1. tiger, due to his oversexed brain, has completely lost his mind even when choosing the proper care for his knee. 2. tiger, even with his oversexed brain, knew what he was doing because apparently he had recovered quite well. for people like tiger, often it is a matter of a question like,,,who is the best in the field. possibly that canadian guy's name came up. the most powerful recommendation is word of mouth. also, it seems that that doc has been working with top athletes and possibly mastered the art of being discrete. an orlando doc, if allowed to treat tiger, probably buys a billboard next day and advertises as such. the fact that the canadian doc has no usa license is of course a big deal now, but often, i know american doctors going abroad and doing surgeries in other countries, as volunteer or in a teaching setting, without local licenses. isn't canada and mexico part of usa? what is the big deal here?

I still see no difference in tiger flying to canada on his jet 4 times to get treatments. Instead he flew the doc to his house.

I also wonder if drawing blood and injecting blood is "medical." Nurses can do certain amounts of things, right?

But I really don't care all that much. If it was just the PRP, then I don't think Tiger really did anything wrong.

i suppose the angle the media is driving at, eventually, is whether there is evidence that tiger took illegal substances such as steroids. this canadian doc thingy is just the first layer to peel.

even if the canadian doc has no usa license, getting treated by him in the usa should not get the patient into any trouble legally. tiger's driver can have an expired driver's license and it is ok for tiger to ride in that car as a passenger,,,

No, nothing wrong. I was watching 1st and 10 on ESPN, the host and Skip Bayless had the procedure, they both said nothing controversial about it.

In fact, its a pretty smart idea. I do think it is medical, but i don't have proof, i just think that since you need sterile syringes, I would classify it as medical. (Note on Skip Bayless, his brother is famous chef Rick Bayless)

    • #40 Would You Rather... 1) Putt on greens that are fast (say 11-12 on the stimpmeter) but relatively flat and somewhat predictable, the major punishment being it will roll forever if you miss the hole.   OR 2) Putt on greens that are average (say 8-9 on the stimpmeter) but have great undulations, shelves that make you have to really think about how the ball will need to roll.    I like greens that have slopes and undulations as long as the green speeds match well with the slopes and the holes are located in appropriate locations.  Mostly flat greens are fairly uninteresting, even if they are very slick.  So I will vote for #2.  We just finished playing a very nice course in northern Indiana that had one serious flaw; many of the greens had too much slope for the speed of the greens.  No one wants fuzzy greens but at the same time, hitting a putt two inches and having it roll off the front of the green isn't fun either.  
    • Working on the same things. I adjusted the the grip slightly stronger which is getting more height back for me. I still miss right though(actually more often which is weird to me) especially if I hold off the overtaking too much. Without much direction right now I have been trying a few things. After this video I started working a little bit on getting that hands and club a bit deeper again in the BS. It is straightening the shots out for me, I am just worried about not overdoing it and letting the hooks creep back in. I'll likely need to introduce more hold off as I get a bit deeper. I'm not sure I will keep with that feel or not.     
    • Pretty much how my range sessions look.😄
    • I am not allowed to reveal info provided by the USGA through their Rules Q & A service.  In my opinion, you have a good grasp of the Rules and your interpretations appear to be accurate. Thanks
    • Woods talks about the 9 windows drill, shaping shots and height. Obviously this was recorded before the accident. Wonder what else they have in the archives. 04:30 - It's a center strike, some players will flail it off the toe. NOOOOooo!!!
