Tiger Woods will not face disciplinary measures from the PGA Tour for "conduct unbecoming" – and nor do officials have concerns over his involvement with Dr Anthony Galea, who is suspected of supplying performance-enhancing drugs.

Tim Finchem, the Tour's commissioner, giving his first interview since the scandal of Woods' extra-marital affairs broke, stood by the world No 1. "The PGA Tour has never in my knowledge taken a situation in someone's personal life and dealt with it in a disciplinary manner," he said, adding that he could see no "violation" of the sport's doping code.

Meanwhile, there were reports last night that Gillette is reconsidering its advertising contract with Woods, estimated to be worth between £10m-£20m a year to the golfer.
