Several Golfers Say They Have Never Been Drug Tested Away From Tournament Site

WEIGHING IN: McIlroy yesterday indicated that Vijay Singh “should be punished, in some manner," for his recent admission to using deer-antler spray, which is banned by the Tour. However, GOLFCHANNEL.com's Ryan Lavner noted McIlroy "doesn’t think that performance-enhancers really help a golfer excel on the course.” McIlroy said, “Golf is built on integrity. I think it was an honest mistake. Of course if you take something, you’ve got to be penalized in some way because you might be getting an unfair advantage against the field. But I think golf is clean. I don’t see how any real performance-enhancing drugs can actually help. ... I don’t see any sort of drug out there that could really help a golfer across the board” (GOLFCHANNEL.com, 2/19).
