The manager for Tiger Woods and the PGA Tour have strongly denied claims made by a journeyman pro that Woods is currently serving a month-long suspension.
Dan Olsen, who last played a Tour event in 2011, said on Michigan radio station 730AM that a “strong witness … a credible person” told him that Woods was suspended for a month by the PGA Tour.
Olsen, 48, went on to say that, “when it’s all said and done, [Woods] is going to surpass Lance Armstrong with infamy.”
In a statement released to Golf Channel, Woods’ manager, Mark Steinberg, said that the claims are “absolutely, unequivocally and completely false. They are unsourced, unverified and completely ridiculous. The PGA Tour has confirmed that there is no truth to these claims.”
Olsen later recanted his claim to GolfChannel.com, saying, “My comments were Ill advised. I retract the entire interview and apologize to Nike, the PGA Tour, Tiger and Tim Finchem.”
