The Tiger Woods Apology Tour 2010 stopped at Augusta National Golf Club today (April 5) where Tiger addressed over 200 reporters. Tiger, sporting a new goatee, spoke about his sex scandal, of course, but also about his return to golf, his controversial medical choices, and his Thanksgiving car accident.
Woods says that golf has finally become fun again. “When you’re living a life that is a lie, life isn’t fun. Now that’s been stripped away, it feels fun again.”
]]>Dr. Anthony Galea,
who has reportedly provided other athletes with performance-enhancing
drugs, Woods says “I’ve never taken any illegal drug, ever.”
Tiger was under Galea’s care after tearing his Achilles tendon and
getting knee surgery. Galea performed a procedure called platelet-rich
plasma, in which Tiger’s own blood was put in a centrifuge to produce
concentrated platelets that accelerate tissue repair.
Galea is currently under investigation, and Tiger says that the
authorities “will get full cooperation whenever they need me, but right
now they haven’t asked for my time.”
Regarding his Thanksgiving car accident, Woods says that he received
stitches in his mouth and was fined $166. “It’s a closed case,” he says.
“I’m trying as hard as I possibly can each and every day to get my life
better and better and stronger, and if I win championships along the
way, so be it.”
