HSBC Match Play Championship

The HSBC Match Play Championship kicks off this week in Wentworth, England with an impressive field of 16 players. The field of 16 players who qualfied through a special points list is highlighted by U.S. stars Tiger Woods and Jim Furyk, both of which will be playing in the Ryder Cup matches next week at the K Club in Dublin, Ireland. Tiger will continue his record setting season starting with Shaun Micheel, the 2003 PGA Champion, in the first round. Micheel will not be an easy match as Woods prepares for the Ryder Cup. Micheel's suffered after his first victory of any kind, but has slowly worked his way back into high finishes after the doctor suggested he begin taking testosterone pills. The field also includes European Ryder Cuppers such as Colin Montgomerie, Luke Donald, Angel Cabrera, Paul Casey, and Robert Karllson.

  1. Shaun Micheel won the PGA Championship in 2003 with one of the most dramatic shots in history, and his frank discussion of his treatment for low testosterone in the golf magazines sparks renewed interest for men over 50 in this aspect of medical treatment.

    One question that always comes up is:

    Does Testosterone Therapy cause Prostate Cancer?

    Dr. Rhoden reviewed 72 medical studies and found no evidence that testosterone therapy causes prostate cancer. For a link to the Rhoden article in the January 2004 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine, see this page:
