Could steroid use be partially to blame for Tiger Woods‘ apparent sex addiction? That theory may be a stretch, but it does turn out one of the legendary golfer’s doctors is being investigated by the FBI for providing performance-enhancing drugs to athletes under his care.

Dr. Anthony Galea, a sports medicine specialist who treated Woods for his 2008 knee injury, is currently being investigated for possibly providing athletes with human growth hormones (HGH). Galea is also being investigated by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police for “smuggling, advertising and selling unapproved drugs,” according to the New York Times.

Mark Steinberg, Tiger Woods’ agent, reportedly asked the New York Times not to proceed with their story about Dr. Anthony Galea via e-mail. “I would really ask that you guys don’t write this?” Steinberg reportedly wrote. “If Tiger is NOT implicated, and won’t be, let’s give the kid a break.”

With yet another alleged mistress now added to the list of Tiger Woods women this week – Theresa Rogers – and now a connection to a doctor who allegedly dopes athletes, it’s no wonder Woods decided to drop out of the public eye for a while.
