Dysfunction: Stenson suggests test for Viagra

RSS

Henrik Stenson opened with a 4-under 67 Thursday at Innisbrook and sits two shots back of Brian Davis' first-round lead at the Valspar Championship.

Of course, a 67 from Stenson, the No. 3 player in the world, is hardly uncommon. A well-worded Viagra joke, on the other hand ...

Following John Daly's recent claims that the PGA Tour's drug testing policy is a "big joke," Stenson was asked by reporters on Wednesday how he would run the program.

Question: Would you be more inclined to test you after winning Deutsche Bank or the following week?

Answer: At the Olympics don't they always test the medalists?  I wouldn't be against that, you know.  You can always test anyone that does any good.

"Again, it depends on what you're looking for and I mean there's rules for everything that's on those lists but, again, I've said that before. Long and straight. Viagra might be the only one that's going to get you anywhere. I don't know. What else? I don't know what else you take for performance enhancement in golf. I don't know."

As always, should your round last longer than four hours, call your club's pro shop right away.
