Vijay Singh: I didn't know deer antler spray was banned substance

Vijay Singh said in a written statement Wednesday that he used a deer antler spray reputed to help stimulate muscle growth, but that he was shocked that the spray may have contained a substance banned by the PGA Tour.

In light of the recent article on sportsillustrated.com, I want to issue the following statement:

While I have used deer antler spray, at no time was I aware that it may contain a substance that is banned under the PGA TOUR Anti-Doping Policy. In fact, when I first received the product, I reviewed the list of ingredients and did not see any prohibited substances. I am absolutely shocked that deer antler spray may contain a banned substance and am angry that I have put myself in this position. I have been in contact with the PGA TOUR and am cooperating fully with their review of this matter. I will not be commenting further at this time.

In the Sports Illustrated article, Singh was named as one of several athletes to use a banned substance from a two-man company called S.W.A.T.S. -- Sports with Alternatives to Steroids. The company sells products such as deer antler spray and hologram chips that they claim will help athletes perform better on the field. The deer antler spray contains IGF-1, which SI describes as a "natural, anabolic hormone that stimulates muscle growth." It is also a banned substance by all major pro sports leagues.

3. Amazingly, he's only the third-biggest douche in golf

despite this AND dissing Annika Sorenstam.

Eldrick and Phil "Me? Pay taxes?" Mickelson are still 1-2.
