This story has more twists than, well, a deer's antler.
The Vijay Singh saga took another turn Wednesday when it was announced the veteran golfer had filed a lawsuit against the PGA Tour.
It started in late January when Singh admitted in a Sports Illustrated article that he had used deer antler spray, which contains small amounts of IGF-1, which was then on the PGA Tour's list of banned substances. Singh immediately said he didn't know he had taken a banned substance.
Then, following the letter of the rule that does not excuse ignorance, the PGA Tour issued a reported 90-day suspension in mid-February, which Singh appealed.
In an amazing twist early last week, the World Anti-Doping Agency said it no longer considered deer antler spray a banned substance, leaving the PGA Tour to follow suit, basically dropping its case against Singh.
