Tiger Woods admits to taking drugs during US Open

Tiger Woods recently underwent knee surgery. His doctors had warned him not to play golf until he has recovered. What does this greedy golfer do? He plays in the US Open. It was evident that he was in pain during the round on Father's Day 2008. He admitted in a news conference after the playing for the day that he was in pain and took "something" for it. Drug testing for golf pros was questioned in Golf World's magazine in January 2008. The major concern at that time was the use of recreational drugs.

Now for my input on the subject: Why aren't golf pros tested for drugs use in competition like other sports? I am talking about drugs to kill pain as well as steroid use. Athletes not in pain will perform better than athletes in pain. Painkillers should be a no - no in sports.

So the question is "what did Tiger take?"
