Governing body says no doping issues

The head of golf’s governing body says there is no evidence of
doping in the sport and stresses there will be no complacency in
the fight to keep it drug-free.

Athletics is in turmoil after two of the world’s top sprinters,
Tyson Gay and Asafa Powell, confirmed they have failed doping
tests. But Royal and Ancient chief executive Peter Dawson says his
organization is ”right on the case” and that ”anti-doping
policies do as much as they can to trap miscreants.”

Dawson says ”I have no particular evidence of a problem.
Everything I hear is anecdotal and hasn’t had very much specific
behind it.”

Dawson adds that players who want to compete in the 2016
Olympics will have to follow more stringent doping policies adopted
by the International Golf Federation.
