UCLA Olympic lab penalized by world drug agency

Now the Tour only discloses suspension information for violations related to performance-enhancing drugs, while other violations related to "conduct unbecoming a professional" were handled confidentially.

The PGA Tour has confirmed a significant number of changes to its anti-doping program next season, including the introduction of blood testing and the public disclosure of suspensions for recreational drug violations. He said tour officials saw how the blood testing was administered and whether the actual testing affected performance. In addition, golfers who competed in the Olympic Games underwent blood testing with no issues.

The new Tour policy also will expand banned substances and methods to match the current World Anti-Doping Association prohibited list and will be reviewed annually to determine if there should be any changes or revisions.

As part of the changes, the PGA Tour will be adding three categories now prohibited by WADA: asthma medications, allergy and anti-inflammatory medications, and pseudoephedrine over a designated threshold.

He said the process for therapeutic use exemptions (TUE) involving some of those additional substances would be adjusted to make the response time quicker.

Prime Minister To Hold Talks With NI's Five Main Parties
Mrs May met the five main Northern Ireland parties yesterday and warned time was running out to save the devolved institutions. Mrs O'Neill said she would discuss her concerns with Taoiseach Leo Varadkar the following day.

But he said players were facing different lists around the world, particularly in the Olympics.

Instead, the Tour will issue a statement at the beginning of next season "once the adjudication process is completed" detailing the player's name, length of suspension and whether the violation came from a performance-enhancing drug or a "drug of abuse". Recreational drugs fell under the tour's private "conduct unbecoming a professional" disciplinary policy.

The PGA Tour provides the week-to-week competitions for numerous world's top golfers who base themselves in the United States, while the European Tour does so in Europe.

Jay Monahan, who took over from the long-serving Tim Finchem as the PGA Tour's commissioner at the beginning of the year, announced the changes to the policy, which was started in 2008. This included blood testing and whereabouts (at home) testing.
