Did Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson Take CBD at the Masters?

Tiger Woods’ victory at the Masters is a comeback story for the ages. After a series of scandals and losses, Tiger was back in perfect form at the 2019 Masters, securing a victory reminiscent of 20 years ago. Except for one minor detail: his gum-chewing habit.

Did Tiger Woods chew CBD gum at the Masters?

Tiger Woods raised eyebrows with his constant gum chewing during his legendary victory. While this isn’t the first time that he’s chewed gum while playing golf, it’s definitely the first time we’ve seen him chewing away like that from start to finish. Why?

“Well, I’m chomping on this gum because I usually get hungry, I keep eating so much,” Woods explained. “And it curbs my appetite a little bit, which is nice.”

While that explanation definitely makes sense, a lot of people are speculating that he may have been chewing CBD gum. Fans think that he may have been chewing CBD to help calm his nerves or possibly to reduce pain.

Was Phil Mickelson taking CBD oil at the Masters?

A number of golf fans spotted Phil Mickelson using a small dropper to put a few drops of an unidentified liquid in his mouth. He didn’t make a huge scene of it, but CBD fans immediately knew what they thought they saw.

Tinctures are one of the most common ways to use CBD. Tinctures come in a small glass bottle with a dropper that you use to place the liquid underneath your tongue, similar to what Mickelson was spotted doing during the Masters.

Like Woods, Mickelson still hasn’t confirmed that he’s using CBD. He normally discloses these kinds of things, especially if there’s a possibility of making money off of a sponsorship deal.

Is CBD oil a performance-enhancing drug?

The PGA Tour Anti-Doping Agency does not consider cannabidiol to be a performance-enhancing drug. The World Anti-Doping Agency, under which the tour models it’s own program, also does not consider CBD to be a performance-enhancing drug after removing it from their list of banned substances in September 2017.

While it’s not officially considered a performance-enhancing drug, people use it to reduce anxiety, pain, and other ailments. It’s obvious that staying calm under pressure would definitely make someone more likely to succeed in a high-stakes environment like the Masters. If we get any more details about Tiger and Phil’s possible CBD consumption we’ll definitely let you know. Who knows? Maybe they’ll start vaping like fellow pro golfer Kiradech Aphibarnrat.
