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

it, asking that a jury hear his case and award him damages on the grounds that the PGA Tour has dishonestly labeled him as a doper and a cheater for doing nothing more than "taking medications prescribed for him by his medical doctors for perfectly normal and legitimate medical reasons." His suit charges that the PGA Tour has made knowingly false, misleading and defamatory statements about him "with reckless disregard for the entire truth of the subject matter."

Pointing out that a judge has already signaled that Barron would likely be held blameless regarding his use of a beta blocker for treating his mitral valve prolapse, Whitehead added that, "he should also have an easy case demonstrating to a jury that his use of testosterone replacement therapy for his hypogonadism (Low T) is in no way a performance enhancement abuse."

Whitehead said that, if asked, he would be willing to testify as an expert witness in support of Barron's case against the PGA Tour. He stressed that the company he heads has no relationship with Barron and that Barron uses a different testosterone replacement therapy than his company's product Testopel®.

"What I would much rather do," said the pharmaceutical company CEO, "would be to bring the PGA Tour and Doug Barron together with some thought-leading physicians with internationally-recognized expertise in this field and help professional golf construct sound Anti-Doping policies and procedures rooted in scientific fact and understanding."

"Our company would gladly host such an undertaking. I have so informed PGA Tour Commissioner Timothy W. Finchem and I sincerely hope he takes me up on this offer."
