Tiger Woods commented in support of the PGA Tour's current Anti-Doping policy when Barron was suspended under it.

Unless the PGA Tour revises its current policy it could find itself still entangled in this Low T controversy come November 2010 when Micheel's present exemption expires. The PGA Tour will require Micheel to give up testosterone replacement therapy for a minimum of six to eight weeks and go through the blood-testing process again in order to get another exemption.

Micheel called the process he had to go through the last time "adversarial" and said that it "nearly drove me out of the game."
