Vijay Should Be Suspended, Now: The AGS Blog

The game has always been about honor
There have been many times when the players of the game have not been honorable people, or the doers of honorable things, but the game has always been about honor
That’s why Tim Finchem, the Commissioner of the PGA Tour is now facing a tough decision, a decision of honor
Vijay Singh has admitted to using an illegal substance.  He said it was a mistake, an oversight on his part, he didn’t mean to break the rules.
It’s easy to give Vijay the benefit of the doubt, again when it come to the rules of the game, golfers are an honorable sort.
But the fact remains, the rules are there, they’re there for a reason and Vijay broke them.
If this were an on course violation, the player would have called it on himself, and suffered the consequences.  The stories are numerous.
This was an off the course violation, the player did call it on himself (sorta), and now the consequences must be applied.
In time, Vijay will be better for it, but the game will be better for it today.
