NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. — Tiger Woods says he has met with federal authorities investigating a Canadian doctor accused of distributing a human growth hormone.

Woods said Thursday the meeting took place last week in Orlando, Fla., and lasted a couple of hours. He said he cooperated with them and answered all their questions.

Woods has said he was treated by Dr. Anthony Galea, but he has repeatedly said he has never taken performance-enhancing drugs. He said Galea used a blood-spinning technique to help his recovery from knee surgery.
