Vijay sues PGA Tour over deer antler controversy

The Vijay Singh deer antler spray controversy shows no signs of abating yet, as the golfer has gone on the offensive and filing his own lawsuit against the PGA Tour.

Back in January the former World No1 admitted to using the controversial item which resulted in a suspension from the PGA, which was successfully appealed by the Fijian.

Not content with being cleared of using banned substances, Singh has sued the Tour, saying the ban left him "humiliated, ridiculed, and emotionally distraught".

"I am proud of my achievement, my work ethic and the way I live my life," said Singh in a statement.

"The PGA Tour not only treated me unfairly, but displayed a lack of professionalism that should concern every professional golfer and fan of the game."

Singh's representatives said that the 2000 US Masters champion had been suspended for 90 days without due diligence on behalf of the PGA.

"Rather than performing its duties to golfers first, and then determining whether there had been any violation of the Anti-Doping Program, the PGA Tour rushed to judgement and accused one of the world's hardest-working and most dedicated golfers of violating the rules of the game."

If Singh thought his fellow pros would rush to his cause he should probably think again.

“He’s getting incredibly poor advice,” commented tour player Joe Ogilvie.

"VJ don't do this horrible advice you got off take it from me not worth it," tweeted John Daly, who has got in more trouble than most with the PGA Tour.
