Vijay Singh’s admission last week of using the deer antler spray has raised the question of the use of performance enhancing drugs (PEDs) in professional golf. Singh has vehemently denied that he knew that the deer antler spray contained any banned substance (the substance being Insulin Growth Factor known as IGF-1).
Fair or unfair for Singh, like any athlete that has been associated with PEDs, it raises the question whether Singh has used PEDs at any other point in his career. TheTeeSheet examines the arguments for and against.
In this article, the use of PEDs in golf is considered and examined. A career comparison between Singh PGA wins and Barry Bonds HRs is considered and examined in the context of their peers.
TheTeeSheet examines PED use and how do these comparisons measure against the other top home run hitters and PGA Tour winners.
