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)

    • 87 today at my home course.  Hit 4 GIR:  holes 1, 17, and 18, but only one in between (#8, a 4-wood into the wind to about 15', had a tap-in par on that one).
    • Day 151.  Tournament at my home course today.  I shot an 87 with 4 GIR and 7 near-GIR.  Now that I write that out, I feel my long game was better than that stat line today, but I guess not.  I did some full swing practice before the round, outdoors at the range, checking my backswing length as per my past month or so of work.
    • Secured a par at my home course's hole #17 today.  I am not happy with how long it took me to get better than bogey on it.  I hit a poor tee shot, a good recovery punch shot, then a sweeping hook 6-iron to the green.  I correctly read that the lie and setup would hook, aimed well left of the green, and swung.  Big hook, ended on the left side of the green, 15' from the pin, and I darn near made the birdie putt too. Speaking of which, I gave a par at #s 7 and 9 a good run today too.  Still no birdies at my home course this year! 😞 
    • There was a professional football team called the [New York] Guardians fairly recently.
    • When I was doing fittings for Ping this past spring I had one customer come with his printout from Club Champion.  He was an average golfer pushing 70 years old.  The shafts they wanted to use, I never heard of before but each one for fw and driver were over $400.  Again… I have never heard of the name.  It goes with what Adam said about them using shafts not available from the mfg so you can’t get it through them instead. Ended up fitting him into Ping stock offerings that worked very well for him.  Happy customer!
