In an article at SI.com that is sure to gain the attention of everyone in the golf industry, Vijay Singh admits to using deer antler spray, which contains IGF-1, a banned substance on the PGA TOUR.
IGF-1 is banned throughout professional sports due to its protective and recovery capabilities. Singh reportedly purchased the product from Sports with Alternatives to Steroids a/k/a S.W.A.T.S., a company known for assisting professional athletes with their performance. Here is the excerpt from the article in its entirety: Vijay Singh, however, remains a vocal supporter. In November, Singh paid Ross $9,000 for the spray, chips, beam ray and powder additive -- making him one of the few athletes who is compensating S.W.A.T.S. He says he uses the spray banned by the PGA "every couple of hours . . . every day," sleeps with the beam ray on and has put chips on his ankles, waist and shoulders. "I'm looking forward to some change in my body," Singh says. "It's really hard to feel the difference if you're only doing it for a couple of months." Stay tuned for a response from the TOUR.
