You won’t be seeing Scott Stallings competing in golf for a long time, well at least for 90 days. Stallings was handed a 90-day suspension after he was found guilty of violating the circuits strict anti-doping policy. By doing so, Stallings is now officially the third player to ever be suspended by the PGA Tour for anti-doping related cases.

According to the PGA Tour, this particular drug is basically an anabolic agent which is a precursor to production of testosterone. Having known that he had done the wrong thing, Stalling, a three-time Tour winner, decided that it was best for him to turn himself in. 

Speaking to golf channel regarding the recent events, Stalling stated that, “regardless of whether I took it knowingly or not, I took something that the PGA Tour had banned. The best way to actually look at it is by simply stating that I called a penalty on myself.” He went on further and added that the Tour officials were actually surprised by his action. “The Tour officials were really surprised by the fact that I did it so quickly,” Stalling said.    

Following the revelation, the Tour went on and announced the number of days that Stalling won’t be allowed to take to the field as he was banned as well as the violation he made in a statement that was issued out mid this week.
