What benefits would it give golfers? The main purpose of steroids, as I understand, is to allow you to recover quicker from a workout. So some dude golfer is going to recover quicker from a putting practice session? However, I don't think Tiger would raise the issue unless someone were actually on the 'roids.

I wonder if Fincham has heard of the idea of being proactive ? Find out now, stop it now not later when the whole world is pissed of at the PGA for taking no action?

A little embarrassment now would be much preferable to Blazing headlines about "head-in-the-sand" or sitting on ones hands till it's broke.

I have no idea if there is doping going on in the game of golf, but given all the stories we read about drugs/doping in other sports, I'd bet on steroids or some enhancer being used by someone in the sport.

I agree with Ron. Taking steroids wouldn't have the same effect on golfers as it does on guys in other sports.

I think John Daly's approach is best. Stick with the Dunkin' Donuts and wash it down with some TrimSpa.

While their may not be that many PGA tour pros using steroids-the Long Driving guys-(example-Pinnacle Posse)-would surely benefit from taking them.

I think there are certainly some advantages that golfers could find from steriods. Not every athlete taking these things blows up and loses flexibility. Look at Jason Grimsley.

Ron and Stacey- steriods not only give the advantage of recovery, they also give the advantage of speed. More speed in a golfer's lower body translates to more club speed, which translates into more distance. Don't let a player's size fool you.
