Vijah Singh isn't happy about the PGA Tour wrongfully accusing him of using a performance-enhancing drug. And the veteran golfer has decided to take formal action on Wednesday.In January, Singh admitted to using deer antler spray, but said he was unaware that it contained any ingredient banned by the Tour. This is when the PGA launched an investigation and alleged that Singh was cheating. However, they dismissed the case last week after information supplied by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) confirmed that use of the deer antler spray is no longer outlawed.Singh filed a lawsuit in the Supreme Court of the State of New York on Wednesday claiming the PGA violated its duty of care and good faith. The basis of the suit says the Tour could have concluded that the spray contained no performance enhancement ingredient by simply conducting some basic tests and research."The PGA Tour has now finally admitted that the use of deer antler spray is not prohibited," the suit claims. "Rather than performing its duties to golfers first, and then determining whether there had been any violation of the Anti-Doping Program, the PGA Tour rushed to judgment and accused one of the world's hardest working and most dedicated golfers of violating the rules of the game." Obviously, Singh has upset about the why the situation was handled."I am proud of my achievements, my work ethic, and the way I live my life," Singh said in a statement. "The PGA Tour not only treated me unfairly, but displayed a lack of professionalism that should concern every professional golfer and fan of the game."The PGA Tour has yet to comment on the suit.Singh, 50, has 34 PGA Tour victories in his career, which ranks 14th on the all-time list. He won the prestigious Masters Tournament in 2000.Via USA TODAY
