Steriods in golf. Nah. Well, maybe nah.

Good offering from Damon Hack in the NYTimes on the PGA Tour's take on the steriod...er, ah, issue.

By Damon Hack

In the seven years since Tiger Woods won the P.G.A. Championship at Medinah Country Club, the golf course has been yanked at the roots and stretched to 7,561 yards, making it the longest major championship venue ever devised.

Medinah, which will again play host to the P.G.A. Championship, beginning Thursday, is just one more reminder of a sport becoming identified with power — so much so that some players are questioning if golf could one day fall prey to the performance-enhancing drugs that have plagued other sports, if they have not infiltrated golf already.

For the rest of the story.
