Woods' former swing coach dismisses PED intake reports

Posted By: Staff

New York, May 14 (ANI): Tiger Woods' former swing coach Hank Haney has dismissed reports that claim the golfer's successful career can be credited to performance-enhancing drugs.

Haney insisted that Woods has never used PED.

"I truly believe those (rumors) are 100 percent false. People that say otherwise are just starting rumors. It's based on no facts at all," the New York Daily News quoted him as saying.

A recent Sports Illustrated poll found that 24 percent of PGA Tour players surveyed believed Woods had taken PEDs.

Haney said: "There's a lot of jealousy out there and people will say things but I will just tell you that I spent 110 days a year with Tiger for six years. I spent probably 40 to 50 nights a year at his house. I've never seen him do anything. He's never talked about anything."

He further added that he was present for four of the five times that controversial Dr. Anthony Galea, who is under a federal investigation for PEDs, treated Woods with a legal blood spinning technique.

He said: "I was there and watched the whole procedure. There was never anything that went into Tiger Woods' body that didn't come out of his body. They take blood out, they spin it, they inject the plasma back in. I totally believe that Tiger Woods has never taken any performance-enhancing drugs."

Haney coached Woods for six-years before resigning earlier this week. (ANI)
