Vijay Singh: Centre of controversy

The PGA Tour will investigate reports linking Vijay Singh with a deer antler spray that contains a banned growth hormone.

While the Fijian former world number one will still be allowed to the play Waste Management Open in Phoenix, PGA Tour vice-president Ty Votaw has stated that he will investigate the claims made in an article that appeared in Sports Illustrated recently.

"As we have just been made aware of the report we have not had a chance to review it in depth, but we will be looking into it," Votaw told USA Today Sports.

The article quotes the three-time major winning saying that he used the "every couple of hours...every day" and was "looking forward to some change in my body".

In 2011, former Open champion Mark Calcavecchia was warned after he used a similar product, with PGA Tour spokeswoman Laura Hill saying: "The PGA Tour regularly warns players of the risks associated with all supplements."
