CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (AP)

Vijay Singh has withdrawn from the Wells Fargo Championship, citing a sore back.

Singh pulled out of the tournament one day after the U.S. PGA Tour said it would not punish the 50-year-old Fijian for his admission that he used deer antler spray.

The tour said the World Anti-Doping Agency informed it that the spray contains only small amounts of a substance that is banned under the anti-doping policy.

The tour had been set to sanction Singh until WADA clarified its position on deer antler spray on Tuesday.

Singh won at Quail Hollow in 2005.
