PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem says progress on the construction of the troubled course for golf's return to the Olympics at Rio in 2016 is "reasonably good" and he would travel to Brazil early next year to check on its progress.
Commissioner Tim Finchem admitted on Tuesday that spectators calling in possible rules infractions or video cameras detecting possible rules issues is "difficult and awkward" and that the PGA Tour is studying the matter.
The PGA Tour announced Monday that it will implement the ban of anchored strokes beginning Jan. 1, 2016, opting to not go against golf's governing bodies and adhere to the rules set forth by the United States Golf Association and R&A.
Vijay Singh filed a lawsuit against the PGA Tour on Wednesday, claiming the Tour subjected him to "public humiliation and ridicule for months" after he admitted to using deer-antler spray, which was at the time on the Tour's list of banned substances.
Vijay Singh withdrew from the Wells Fargo Championship because of a sore back Wednesday, one day after the PGA Tour said it would not punish the Fijian for his admission that he used deer antler spray.
Vijay Singh, who earlier this year admitted to taking a banned substance, will not face any sanctions after the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) determined that the use of deer antler spray is no long considered prohibitive.
