Tiger's Swing Coach

Sex Addict, Yes

Doping, No

5/16/2010 4:36 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0516-tiger-woods-getty-reg-creditTiger Woods' former swing coach says Woods underwent treatment for sex addiction during his five-month absence from golf, this according to an interview with The Golf Channel.

Hank Haney, who split from Woods earlier this week, also said he saw no signs that Woods ever took performance-enhancing drugs -- an allegation that has hounded Tiger over the years.

Haney said, "The only thing that I knew about was his issue with the sex addiction."

The full interview airs tonight at 6:00 PM.

If he dopes I don't think it's much. He just doesn't have the look of someone who takes that stuff like candy.

Q    

Like the Swing coach would know what Tiger was doing...add him to the list of caddy, manager, bodyguards who all swear they didnt even know he was HO chasing all that time. You think this dude or any of the others would know or be told by Tiger he was doing PED's? Come on, the Tig only deals with dishonesty with himself, he doesnt share, he was raised that way by his Ho chasing daddy...keep it to yourself or just the tightest inner circle of one that you would lay your life down for..uh, that wouldnt be his wife, but his bff Byron Bell...memba him? The HO appointment setter upper---he be the only one that knew the Tig was a Cad...check with Byron if you want to know if Tig was dirty with the drugs not the Swing coach who oh so conveniently just resigned.

Get a Nose Job, please!!!    

Tiger is such a pathetic Slimeball Pervert. He should give at least half, maybe more, of his money to his wife and kids, retire, and then he can chase whores the rest of his life.

That ex-coach is too kind to cartoon-face lecher Woods. Was he with Mr. Cartoon-Face all of the time, so he knew exactly what the pervert was doing?? What about the doctor who is being investigated for giving PEDs? This story isn't over yet. Lecher Woods will probably end up having to give his golf trophies back. Oh well, he'll still have an army of paid "girlfriends" to comfort him.



He most likely is a sexist who secretly hates women. What else would explain his treatment of his beautiful wife? Some girls probably rejected him because of his looks and personality, and he decided to make up for it. He's just plain weird.

It would be no surprise if he were taking steroids. He has shown he is a liar with no sense of judgement who likes to deceive people. He is also a narcissist who will stop at nothing to achive what he wants.

You're right. Who cares what his former swing coach says. Even if he knew, do you think he would tell the media that Tiger did so? All he would be getting are death threats and people wanting to take him down; both on Tiger's and public side.



Anyways..the dude probably got paid off a handsome amount to stay mum on the drugs

Sex addiction my ass. Not that I don't think sex addiction exists, it sure does. However, being an egotistical whore does not mean you have sex addiction.



He slept with all that bar trash not because he was addicted to sex, but because he thought he was better than mere human, that he was above his vows, and that he was above society and rules. He thought he was some God. It's called hybris. And like in ancient storeis, those who commit hybris fall pretty hard.



You're still falling, Tiger. Just be glad your pride didn't give you AIDS.



Men, if you're going to cheat on your woman, at least wear a condom. Who the eff cares if it doesn't feel as good for you? I'd like to continue living and being fertile when you have warts all over your privates and are HIV positive.

Oh poor me, I have sex addiction. I think about it 24/7, 365 days a year. Please feel sorry for me and excuse whatever I do. I'm not a pervert, I'm a victim. F***ing is my main goal in life.



Regarding his ex-coach, of COURSE he's going to cover Tiger's azz! He's on Team Tiger and has been paid to be. You don't really think he's going to rat on him, do you?!

Even the swing coach can't stand Tiger's presence. In spite of his great wealth, he doesn't tip casino employees when in Las Vegas. They can't stand his rudeness, but have to "be nice" to him or risk losing their jobs.
