Greg Norman slams lack of blood testing in golf`s anti-doping policy
London: Australian golf legend Greg Norman has criticised golf`s anti-doping policies, saying that sport needed to clean up its act by overcoming the lack of blood testing.
This came after Fijian golf ace Vijay Singh admitted taking a deer-antler spray containing a banned substance in January, although the former World No 1 is continuing to play on the PGA Tour as the hormone was never detected due to the sport`s lack of blood testing.
Calling the anti-doping policies as `disgraceful`, Norman said that it is difficult to find out how deep doping in embedded in the sport as they carry out only urine analysis instead of blood testing.
Meanwhile, R and A chief executive Peter Dawson has again defended taking the Open back to men-only Muirfield in July.
