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.
