US Tour suspend Barron for a year for drug abuse

Doug Barron, one of the lesser-known names in pro golf, has been suspended for a year by the US PGA Tour for violating its anti-doping policy.
This is the first suspension under the two-year-old policy and begins immediately.
"I would like to apologise for any negative perception of the tour or its players resulting from my suspension." Barron said, "I want my fellow tour members and the fans to know that I did not intend to gain an unfair competitive advantage or enhance my performance while tour."
The tour had no further comment.
Barron, 40, made no cuts in four Nationwide and one US PGA Tour events this year. He has $2,724,280 in career PGA Tour earnings and most recently had five top 25s and earned $731,990 in 2005, with a best finish of third that year.
