Doug Barron Suspended By PGA For Using Performance Enhancers

Doug Barron has become the first player to be banned by the PGA Tour for taking performance-enhancing drugs. His suspension is scheduled to last one year.

From CNN:

“I would like to apologize for any negative perception of the Tour and its players resulting from my suspension,” Barron said in a statement on the PGA Tour official Web site http://www.pgatour.com.

“I want my fellow Tour members and the fans to know that I did not intend to gain an unfair competitive advantage or enhance my performance while on Tour.”

In common with their policy, the PGA Tour did not release details of the drug taken by Barron to fail the test.

Barron, who turned professional in 1992, was a PGA Tour regular for eight seasons, with his best finish a tie for third at the Byron Nelson Classic in 2006.
