Remember when hall of famer Vijay Singh got busted for the deer antler spray thing? Well, now he’s trying to seek his revenge after feeling like the Tour did him wrong in busting him for drug use. He felt that he was done wrong because the Tour didn’t look into any other player but him and now his lawyers are taking action. An action that Vijay has been looking for as they want the Tour to investigate other players for breaking the drug policy in order for Vijay to prove that he was done wrong. The players his lawyers wanted the Tour to investigate are: Doug Barron, Mark Calcavecchia, Scott Verplank, Dustin Johnson and Matt Every. Barron, Calcavecchia, and Every have all been caught for something before and that’s why Vijay’s lawyers are after those guys. The request doesn’t elaborate on why Johnson and Verplank were included in discovery however and neither golfer has ever been officially linked to a violation according to GolfChannel.com. This makes you wonder, does Vijay not have soft spots for the two popular Tour players?
The Tour denied many of Singh’s requests, including information about Barron, Every and the others, claiming it is not “relevant to the issues raised in this action,” and doing so would violate the players’ right to privacy according to GolfChannel.com. I don’t know a whole lot about this situation but Vijay can kind of be a jerk sometimes and although he got caught for something, he still wants to complain and get other players in trouble who were already in trouble besides Verplank and Johnson. Why he wants to get Scotty V and DJ in trouble is beyond me but to me it’s like focus on the crap you got yourself into and not what guys are doing who didn’t get caught for anything. That’s how I honestly view the situation, keep the players who haven’t done anything out of this. Obviously we don’t know if Scott and Dustin did anything or not, it’s possible nowadays but right now they haven’t been seen or caught with anything or at least not that we know of so that’s why he should back off. If Vijay didn’t use the deer antler stuff in the first then he wouldn’t be in this mess now would he? Stay classy Vijay, stay classy! Read the original story here!
