PGA Tour Seeks to Dismiss Singh Suit Over Antler Spray

The PGA Tour asked a New York state court to throw out a lawsuit by golfer Vijay Singh claiming he was publicly humiliated by a suspension for using deer-antler spray before he was cleared of wrongdoing two months later.

Singh, 50, the world’s top-ranked player in 2004 and 2005, filed a complaint May 8 in New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan accusing the PGA Tour of “reckless administration and implementation” of its anti-doping program. Singh said in the filing that he used the spray, which contains a substance related to growth hormone, for knee and back problems and checked its ingredients against the tour’s list of banned substances to make sure it didn’t contain any of them.
