Woods answers Galea questions


Tiger Woods finally addressed his relationship with Dr. Anthony Galea, the Toronto-based doctor who is at the center of a federal drug investigation for allegedly providing athletes with performance-enhancing drugs.

Woods said he had Galea come to his Orlando-area home after he tore his ACL in 2008, and subesquently after he tore his achilles heel. Woods said Galea performed a blood-spinning techinique to help him recover from surgery. He also said he used a hyperbaric chamber during his recovery process.

Woods made sure to mention that he had never used performance-enhancing drugs, steroids or 'any illegal drugs.'

Woods initially didn't answer 'why' he employed Galea's services, but when asked a follow-up question by a different reporter he said he liked the fact that Galea had a history of working with other athletes.

When asked if he had been contacted by federal authorities, Woods said his agent, Mark Steinberg, had and that they would be cooperating fully.
