PGA Tour Pro Claims Tiger Woods Is Currently Suspended For PEDs [UPDATE: PGA Spokesman & Woods’ Agent Deny Allegations]

For the last few weeks, the general public has assumed that Tiger Woods hasn’t been playing on Tour because of his back and a dog shit golf game, but PGA Tour golfer, Dan Olsen is saying that’s simply not the case. Olsen went on record, during a radio interview with 730 WVFN’s David “Mad Dog” DeMarco, claiming his sources are telling him that Tiger Woods is currently serving a one month suspension for failing a drug test. Later in the interview, Olsen says his sources are “Tour players that are exempt.”

Per Olsen’s interview with 730 WVFN:

“I heard he’s on a month suspension. And it’s kind of a strong witness, a credible person that’s telling me this… It’s not testosterone, but it’s something else. I think when it is all said and done, he is going to surpass Lance Armstrong with…a…infamy.”

Olsen didn’t stop at PED’s. He even goes as far as claiming Tiger Woods has allegedly been using questionable golf balls since the late 1990s. So questionable, in fact, that Nike has paid PGA Tour staff to pick up all the balls so no one get’s the balls.

“Tiger, he’s got some problems now. One of the big problems, Nike’s been giving Tiger a ball that I would almost bet hasn’t been tested…Rory played it too. Remember when Rory signed the Nike deal and he played like an amateur for a year? He was going to fail out of the contract unless he got the high-spin ball too… So if you go to Tour events, Nike pays them, pays the Tour staff and the range staff, they pay them to get all those balls back. That’s why Tiger would never sign a golf ball and give it away… He played a ball that nobody else could play.”

Dan Olsen must have very few fucks left to give if he’s publicly calling out Tiger Woods as a cheater on multiple levels.

Thanks to BroBible writer and PGA Tour caddie, Pinot Pete, for getting this interview on our radar. And while Pinot Pete could not corroborate Olsen’s claim — nor would he probably want to, because LAWSUITS — he did say, “I’ve known Dan Olsen for 10 years. And in all that time, I’ve never known him to stretch the truth.”

[UPDATE: ESPN obtained comment from the PGA, and Tiger Woods’ agent:

Ty Votaw, the executive vice president of the PGA Tour, denied any of the claims brought forth by Olsen.  “There is no truth whatsoever to these claims,” Votaw said. “We categorically deny these allegations.”

The Tour almost never comments on disciplinary matters. Woods said on Feb. 11 that he was taking a break to deal with the issues in his game after withdrawing during the first round last month of the Farmers Insurance Open. “Over the past year, Woods has withdrawn with an injury three times and now fallen outside of the 70 in the world. These claims are absolutely, unequivocally and completely false,” said Woods’ agent, Mark Steinberg, in a statement. “They are unsourced, unverified and completely ridiculous. The PGA Tour has confirmed that there is no truth to these claims.”

It’s been hammered over and over by golf analysts that Tiger’s struggles in recent years have had more to do with his head than physical ailments. That being said, we’ll need much more than talk radio allegations to put Tiger into the same LIARFRAUDCHEATER category as Lance Armstrong. Time will tell if this story has legs.]

The San Diego State Women’s Golf Team Released a Trick Shot Video That Features Some Crazy Acrobatics

San Diego State women's golf trick shot

“Oh great, another trick shot video? Please kill me now I’m so sick of watching these” is what I’m imagining you saying as you briefly skim these words and debate whether or not to hit the “back” button on your browser. But just hold on a sec. The San Diego State women’s golf team must have been feeling left out seeing these all of these slick trick shot videos floating around the internet because they decided to get in on the action and release one of their own.  

I do have to say though, I haven’t seen any male trick shot videos that include acrobatics. So there’s that. At the very least it’s a minute of looking at pretty girls, and who doesn’t hate that?

Golfer Makes Ace During True Thailand Classic and Wins a House

Panuphol Pittayarat, a 22-year-old Thai golfer, won a four-story, three-bedroom townhouse, that is currently being built along the ninth fairway on the course after making an ace at the 192-yard par-3 14th hole at the True Thailand Classic. Pittayarat didn’t make the cut, but came away feeling like he “had won the tournament.”

“I feel like I’ve won this golf tournament. I hit the ball to the right and it was a good shot. I saw the ball just gone and I wasn’t sure if it had gone in. But one of the guys ran up and he said there’s no golf ball on the greens. So I started yelling. It was out of my mind. Six-iron is now my friend.”

“I’m still shaking after finishing 18 holes. I didn’t really think I would ace that hole. It’s the second time I got a hole in one in my career. All I got the first time was two shots but this time I really got something. I’ve seen the pictures of the house every day since I arrived here. And now it’s mine.”

This is a pretty impressive step up from the cars we usually seen won in the U.S. with an ace.

Tiger Woods Announces He’ll Take Short Leave Of Absence But Expects To Play Again ‘Very Soon’

Tiger Woods is taking an indefinite leave of absence from golf. In a report on a TigerWoods.com written by Tiger Woods and titled, “HIS BACK FEELING BETTER, TIGER PLANS TO WORK ON HIS GAME AND PLAY AGAIN SOON,” Tiger Woods announced that he would not play golf unless he could compete at a high level again. Via TigerWoods.com:

The last two weeks have been very disappointing to me, especially Torrey, because I never want to withdraw. Unfortunately, lately injuries have made that happen too often.

This latest injury is not related to my previous surgery. I am having daily physical therapy and I am feeling better every day.

He continued:

Right now, I need a lot of work on my game, and to still spend time with the people that are important to me. My play, and scores, are not acceptable for tournament golf. Like I’ve said, I enter a tournament to compete at the highest level, and when I think I’m ready, I’ll be back. Next week I will practice at Medalist and at home getting ready for the rest of the year.

Don’t expect Tiger’s PGA absence to go on too long, though — he indicated that while he’s not ready to compete in tournaments at this moment, he’s not far off from returning, either:

I do, however, expect to be playing again very soon.

So, Tiger is on a break. For at least two weeks. Or 12 days and counting according to the Honda Classic website.

Best of luck to Tiger as he looks to regain his health and get back into true playing shape — the game just isn’t quite the same without him.

Dudes Hijacking Golf Balls Of Unsuspecting Golfers Get Chased Around the Course [Video]

The hole-in-one prank is simultaneously the most thoughtful and fucked up thing you can do to an old guy. Because when you hit 60 years old, your idea of a fantasy is going to the Playboy Mansion, it’s hitting a small round ball into a hole in the ground and bragging to everyone at your next bingo game.

As for the guy who wasn’t so lucky, and had his ball taken by some guy dressed in devil spandex, lets hope his hamstring is ok.

 Washington Nationals slugger Bryce Harper makes a living crushing homeruns. So there’s no reason to think why the young star couldn’t blast a golf ball .

The 22-year-old outfielder posted the video above on Instagram of him using a Happy Gilmore approach to driving off the tee.

The result? A 340-yard drive.
