Once again a player has been “caught” in violating the doping regulations.
This time it was Brad Fritsch, who self-reported the violation.
Fritsch had taken a product to loose weight, and in this product was something called “DHEA”, which is a prohibited substance (precursor to testosterone production).
The penalty? Three months suspension from the PGA Tour.
Fritsch was very angry with himself; he found that he should have known. You can see his explanation here:
What do you think? Is it getting to much? Are the players penalized too severe in situations, where they really are not to blame and where they don’t really get an advantage?
Or are these penalties completely OK and fair?
