Side effects may include intense salt lick cravings and the urge to head butt.

Vijay Singh tried to cheat and did a lousy job? Wow. Not like we've heard that before. You'd've thunk he'd learned by now.

There are many ways to cheat at golf, but deer antler spray ain't one of them.

I have played golf on drugs many times, and I do not see the point of drug testing golfers.  At all.  It's a bit like testing curlers, dart throwers, and ice fishermen.  It's drug testing gone mad.

Meh. If he did it I don't excuse it... but it was almost thirty years ago and i give him few points back for having a starkly (and way more unlikely) different path to the pga tour than your average tour player.

Marcus Aurelius: I have played golf on drugs many times, and I do not see the point of drug testing golfers. At all.


I'm generally pretty down on your cheaters but having played a shiat load of golf I have to agree. If we accept it as true (and I do) that you couldn't win the tour de france without doping I'd have to say that's not at all true of winning on the pga tour. You could be doped to the gills and absolutely suck and you could absolutely win while clean as a whistle. I'll allow there MIGHT be some small advantage over your peers when it comes to injury recovery but even that's a quibble as the illegal drug regimens are generally only administered at the fringes of medicine and hardly tested to the point a definite advantage is assured. Plus, with the cheating going on it's going to affect your mind in some way. And at the level those guys play at the brain is definitely the most important body part. They're all insanely good.

The Big Fijian just joined Jack Nicklaus, Craig Stadler, Greg Norman and the like in finding his spirit animal.

Is that like having too much pine tar on your bat?  Were VJ's antler's too shiny?

Bets blockers for nerves, synthetic testosterone for muscle recovery and endurance. Doping could definitely make one a better golfer if used properly.

I'm mildly hypertensive. I take beta blockers for my blood pressure. I don't think they'd help all that much if I'm standing on 18 at the TPC, staring down a $25,000 putt.

Between all these weird substances and the magnets and/or titanium jewelry intended to increase your "energy", I have to believe that a lot of professional athletes are missing a chunk of their brain.

It's golf. Normal thought processes have nothing to do with it.

That would explain all of the bark scrapes on trees along the course.

Those are actually from my drives. Sorry.

Alabama's football players use it, and the NCAA look the other way. The PGA might as well do the same.

Maybe booze would help, I've seen guys who can't play without it.
