(AP) Vijay Singh no longer faces any sanction for using deer antler spray.


The PGA Tour said Tuesday it was dropping the case against the three-time major champion. Tour commissioner Tim Finchem says new information from the World Anti-Doping Agency indicates that using deer antler spray is no longer considered prohibited.


The tour confirmed that the spray Singh used contained IGF-1, an insulin-like growth hormone that is on the tour's list of banned substances. Singh was appealing tour sanctions under the anti-doping policy when WADA clarified its position.


Finchem says that based on WADA's position, it would not be fair for the tour to consider Singh in violation of the drug policy.
