No drugs on the Tour?

August 02, 2007

Alessandro Pissilli, who competes on the Italian Pro Tour has tested positive for Finasteride, a drug that can be used as a masking agent. According to an article on the Reuters-UK website, the drug can also be used to treat hair loss.

But with the recent comments of work-out fanatic Gary Player at the British Open, suspicion is in the air. Player said that he estimates, "there's 10 guys taking something. I might be way out - definitely not going to be lower, but there might be a hell of a lot more."
