It’s been an odd few weeks. First, Vijay Singh admitted to using deer antler spray, which contains a banned performance-enhancing substance. Then the USGA announced it will test U.S. Amateur contestants for marijuana, Sergio Garcia stated that drugs aren’t much of a problem in professional golf (they’re not beneficial, he said), and police in Purcell, Oklahoma, discovered a meth lab inside a portable toilet on a local golf course. Finally, a more relevant grass-related story: The USGA revealed it will cut back on the use of “graduated rough,” an intermediate cut of longish grass, at this year’s U.S. Open. Players who miss the fairways on Merion’s short holes will be properly punished, finding deep rough rather than easier to handle transition areas.
