Former PGA Tour player Dan Olsen made a serious accusation on Friday: that Tiger Woods had been suspended by the Tour for a month. Olsen, who was an exempt player for the 2004 PGA Tour season,  made the claim Friday on radio station WVFN  to host David DeMarco. The Michigan-based pro claimed his sources were “exempt Tour players,” but that Woods was not suspended for taking testosterone. “I think when it’s all said and done, he’s going to surpass Lance Armstrong in infamy,” Olsen said. Both Tiger Woods’ agent, Mark Steinberg, and the PGA Tour vehemently deny Olsen’s claims. “These claims are absolutely, unequivocally and completely false,” Steinberg said in a statement . “They are unsourced, unverified and completely ridiculous. The PGA Tour has confirmed that there is no truth to these claims.” “Regarding the allegations made by Dan Olsen concerning Tiger Woods, there is no truth whatsoever to his claims and the PGA Tour categorically denies them,” said PGA Tour media official Joel Schuchmann in a statement made on behalf of the Tour. Olsen went on to make other claims, including that Nike Golf had provided Tiger Woods with a golf ball that gave him an advantage over other players and that Olsen would “almost bet hadn’t been tested.” “So he’s really playing with — I’m not gonna say a cheater ball, because he has the help of the establishment, really — but he played a ball that nobody else could play. … “So that combined with his enhancement issues, like having a Canadian blood spinning doctor in his phone, you know? I mean, I think people are starting to openly call it what it is, which is gonna be a problem for him.”
