Professional golfer Doug Barron has recently been suspended from the PGA tour for failing a drug test
. Barron is the first golfer to test positive
since the substance testing policy was implemented in July 2008. Barron is not a high profile golfer so the PGA has dodged a media circus on the programs first positive test. In the bigger scheme of things we now know that the royal game of golf is not immune to substance abusers and has taken its rightful place in line with baseball, football and all other sports that are plagued with substance abuse and cheating.
