Evidently, golfers are starting to hit the ball too far. In a recent article I found in the Indianapolis Star, the PGA is planning to start testing golfers next year for HGH–that is Human Growth Hormone if you are not familiar. This particular test requires a blood sample and cannot be obtained through the normal urine test.It is hard to believe when you see the size of most golfers that they might be “juiced up”. However, when you see someone less than 6 foot tall hit a ball 350 yards, it makes you think that they might be taking something. The articles I have read so far did not specify if this testing is mandatory before each event or if it will be random. Most professional teams will be tested sometime during a calendar year, but they have very little knowledge of when it could be.When they start testing bowlers, it may have all gone too far.
