Golfer Vijay Singh Sues PGA Over Deer Antler Spray Abuse

Posted on May 11, 2013

Pro golfer Vijay Singh filed a lawsuit against the PGA Tour on Wednesday, seeking unspecified damages for the “public humiliation and ridicule” that the tour allegedly subjected him to during its 12-week investigation into Singh’s use of deer antler spray.

Singh wasn’t looking to keep his antlers shiny. Deer antler spray is purported to contain an insulin-like growth factor, and it was on the PGA Tour’s list of banned substances. In January, Singh told Sports Illustrated that he used the spray and was "looking forward to some change in my body."
