Tiger Woods ex-swing coach Hank Haney said he believes his star pupil never used performance-enhancing drugs, according to Hank Gola of The New York Daily News.

Asked if there was any indication Woods had ever dabbled in PEDs, Haney said, "No, none at all.
"I truly believe those (rumors) are 100% false. People that say otherwise are just starting rumors. It's based on no facts at all," he said.

Haney was referencing a recent Sports Illustrated poll where 24% of PGA Tour players surveyed believed Woods had taken PEDs.
"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," Haney said.

"I was there and watched the whole procedure," he said. "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."
How Arnold Palmer was crowned the king of iced tea how the Arizona Beverage Company took Arnold Palmer's famous half-iced tea/half-lemonade drink to the masses
Ten years ago, Mark Dowey and his two friends in the dairy business were sitting in a country club dining room when one of them ordered an Arnold Palmer, the half lemonade, half iced tea drink combination made famous by the golfing legend.
Up until that point, Palmer — whose connection to the drink goes back to the late 1960's when he was reportedly overheard ordering the drink in a restaurant — had not capitalized on it. Knowing this, the three decided it would make sense to draw up a business plan — on a napkin of course — and present it to Palmer's agents at IMG.
IMG soon granted the rights for Arnold Palmer tea to Dowey's company, Innovative Flavors, who would search for the perfect partner to make the product.
As part of the process, the business team surrounding the now 80-year-old golfer trademarked his name associated with the product.
