PGA Tour's Suspension of Doug Barron For Doping Is 'Dopey,' Says Pharmaceutical Company CEO
Date:12/8/2009

There are many misconceptions about testosterone replacement therapy that have no scientific basis. Perpetuating these misconceptions keeps men who might need treatment - and the FDA estimates there are at least 13 million in the USA - from seeking the medical care that they need."

On November 2nd the PGA Tour issued a news release stating: "Doug Barron has violated the PGA Tour Anti-Doping Policy's ban on the use of performance enhancing substances and has been suspended for one year." They refused a request from Barron's attorneys to add: "Doug Barron disagrees with the PGA Tour's conclusion that he violated their Anti-Doping policy and the resulting sanction. All of the medications that were taken by Doug Barron were prescribed by his Medical Doctors for diagnosed medical conditions."

The two medications involved are a beta blocker that Barron was prescribed in 1987 when he was diagnosed at age 18 with mitral valve prolapse and testosterone that he was prescribed in 2005 following his diagnosis of hypogonadism, having lower than normal testosterone levels, a condition commonly referred to as Low T.

"At Doug Barron's age (40)," explained Whitehead, "a man's odds of suffering from low testosterone levels which can and should be treated are about one in ten and can be double that if certain other medical problems are also present. Men find it difficult to talk about this condition. Doug Barron deserves credit, not rebuke, for openly discussing his medical disability."

"As an avid golfer and enthusiastic golf fan," said Whitehead, "I hope the PGA Tour swiftly reverses this decision which is lacking in factual merit and which is unfairly damaging the reputation and career of this young professional golfer."
