LPGA to begin drug testing its players in 2008
The LPGA Tour has become the first major pro golf tour to announce it will begin drug testing its players. The LPGA will begin the drug-testing program in 2008.
The tour announced it is still developing its drug-testing program, but will have it set within nine months. The European Tour has said it is working on creating a drug-testing policy, while the PGA Tour, despite endorsements from Tiger Woods and other players, has yet to commit to a plan.
“While we have no evidence to date that any of our players are using performance-enhancing drugs, we need to have a very clear policy and a program in place,” LPGA Commissioner Carolyn Bivens told the Associated Press. “We want to take a proactive role.”
