I'm thinking any kind of supplement called "The ____" is probably not going to be a good thing. But deer antler spray?
Eric Adelson and Adam Watson report that Mark Calcaveccia and other Champions Tour players have had to end their ties to a deer antler spray product containing IGF-1, a growth hormone on the banned list of the World Anti-Doping Association and all major sports organizations.
On Wednesday night, S.W.A.T.S. founder Mitch Ross said golfer Mark Calcavecchia informed him via text message that the Tour contacted him and told him to stop using the spray immediately.
"Got a call from the tour," the text read. "The Spray is officially illegal. Told me to stop (using) now."
Ross said Calcavecchia also requested that his testimonial be removed from the S.W.A.T.S. website. This comes on the heels of the NFL ordering all of its players to cut ties with S.W.A.T.S. back in February, a move that required Ross to remove those player testimonials as well.
