Vijay Singh Drops Out of Wells Fargo Championship

Vijay Singh withdrew from the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow Club the day after he was cleared of a drug violation by the PGA Tour. According to the tour, Singh indicated that a back injury was the reason for his withdrawal on Wednesday.

Singh is now the 7th player to withdraw from the tour this week. Other players to drop off have been Dustin Johnson, Ian Poulter and David Toms.

As a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame and achiever of 34 Tour titles, including three major championships, Singh won the Wells Fargo in 2005.

Back in January, Singh discussed the use of deer-antler spray during an interview with Sports Illustrated. He claimed that he did not know that it contained a forbidden performance-enhancer connected to human growth hormone called Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1).

The details given by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) during the Tour's investigation discovered that the use of deer antler spray is no longer restricted. Armed with that information, the PGA Tour Commissioner, Tim Finchem, announced that the case against Singh would be dropped when he spoke at Quail Hollow Club on Tuesday.
