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)

    • Day 201.  Played 18 holes today.  A course where I should have hit more than the 5 GIR I hit and should have shot lower than the 87 I did.  The driving range was closed before the round, and I hit my opening tee shot O.B..  😞  Not sure why I missed so many shots, especially driver, right.  Will have to do some outdoor practice to complement my indoor practice to ensure I'm not getting wild.

    • As a side note I do have one set of clubs aimed towards beginners and another set aimed towards better players and are "less forgiving". I honestly don't notice that much of a difference so I wonder if it's really that important.
    • Hello Arturo28mx, Thanks for the response.  I'm not sure the analogy fits my question very well though, or perhaps I didn't communicate my question well. To me it's not about "I want to learn to drive a car so I'll buy a Ferrari to force myself to learn to be a better driver.".  I agree with you, I don't see how buying a Ferrari would make me a better driver than say, a Toyota Corolla. It's more like "I want to learn to learn to drive a manual sports car but manual sports cars usually have very precise clutches and don't offer the driver a large margin of error.  Would it be better or faster for me to start by learning on a manual car whose clutch has a large margin of error and working my way up, or dive in the deep end right away and start with a manual car whose clutch has a small margin of error right off the bat." The way I see it, generally speaking, people learn and improve faster when they are forced to.  It usually takes people a lot longer to learn or improve in something if there's no sense of urgency or necessity.  Of course there are people who can keep themselves motivated and will learn or improve very quickly regardless; but generally speaking, urgency and necessity are very good motivators. My goal is to be able to consistently strike the ball in the center of the club face.  My question is, would it be better to force myself to use less forgiving golf club heads right at the beginning, necessitating me to really focus on consistently striking the ball perfectly center right away.  Or use more forgiving golf club heads at first and remove the necessity to strike the ball perfectly center every time since the club head will forgive off center strikes (to a certain extent).   @arturo28mx    
    • So I stumbled across on how to change your lineup.   1. Hit Edit Roster. 2. Select the Round, say Round 2. 3. Select the Active player you want to move. This means select and hold your finger on the player (place finger on the player image) and drag the player down to the player you want to replace him with and let go. Drag the player and put him over the player you want. This can be found no where in FAQ. Good Luck.
