The beginning of the drug testing era on the PGA Tour
Arnold Palmer starts the Masters by hitting the ceremonial tee shot on Thursday morning.
In a slightly less honorable parallel, Tim Finchem started the drug testing era for the PGA Tour by peeing in the ceremonial cup. Upon further review of the cup itself, it was thankfully deduced that the cup neither the Claret Jug nor the Ryder Cup.
Players and officials have been warned not to leave the pee cups laying around as John Daly might chug them, mistaking for a Pabst Blue Ribbon.
Golf is a game of honor
I think it is too bad that professional golf had to turn to drug testing. It is a game of honor and players call penalties on themselves on the course supposedly. Though I think it is likely that some players do illegal drugs, I haven’t noticed any massively over sized heads so I doubt anyone is doing steroids. And like Paul Azinger wisely points out, steroids don’t help people make three foot putts.
Players’ pee to be on ebay soon
Now that famous PGA players are peeing in cups, I doubt it will be long before we see their pee up for sale on ebay.
Happy Birthday to the United States of America
