Vijay Singh's deer-antler spray comments have certainly shocked the sports world. According to a report on Wednesday (Jan. 30), Singh admitted to using deer-antler spray in the past. It's surprising that a golfer would admit to using it, but Singh is pretty adamant about not knowing that it was actually a banned substance.
Singh stated that, "While I have used deer-antler spray, at no time was I aware that it may contain a substance that is banned under the PGA Tour anti-doping policy." His use of the spray is estimated at a few months and it is assumed that he used the product to recover more quickly from a series of health problems that he has been forced to deal with.
After his statements had been made, it was revealed that the PGA Tour is now going to look into the matter. It's unclear if the governing body of golf would levy any type of punishment against Singh, especially when he never actually tested positive for any banned substances. Still, an admission to violating the anti-doping policies of the sport certainly doesn't put Singh in the most positive of lights.
Vijay Singh's deer-antler spray use may have gone undetected if not for his admission, so maybe he is due some credit for coming clean on using the product. That might not allow him to escape a suspension, but the PGA Tour definitely needs to take his honesty into consideration no matter what decision they make.
