- NEWS I FIND INTERESTING
Golf legend, Tiger Woods spoke Monday in advance of the Masters (golf’s first major event of the year), ending a mostly silent period since November. He faced questions ranging from whether he received human growth hormone from Dr. Anthony Galea (who is under investigation by federal authorities) to why he had avoided answering questions until now.
None of the assembled reporters asked specifically about the events leading to his accident, however, something he refused to address in his few previous comments. He denied receiving performance enhancing drugs from Dr. Galea.
Woods continued to express contrition about his infidelity, about straying from the principles he said his parents raised him by. “I lied to a lot of people, I deceived a lot of people,” he said. “I rationalized. I kept a lot of people in the dark. I even lied to myself.”
In his short television interviews, as in his Feb. 19 statement, he declined to discuss the events of Nov. 27. He has repeatedly apologized for his indiscretions and said he had strayed from Buddhist principles taught to him by his parents.
