European Tour Would Honor Vijay Suspension

That question and other anecdotes from the European Tour perspective are answered by Steve Elling who quotes several players talking about Vijay Singh's admission to using a banned substance.

Lee Westwood was the funniest:

"Deer-antler spray?" Westwood said, repeating the offending substance. "Sounds like something you'd wax your car with."

This from Euro Tour head George O'Grady answers whether Singh could play overseas during his ban:

"This, a drug thing, if that's what it was, whatever the PGA Tour would do, we would support," O'Grady said.

"a drug thing," not to over-generalize or anything

Don't Bogart that spray, ma friend, pass it over to me.

Sir Bob Charles says he's been taking deer antler for over 20 years. I always knew that guy was a scumbag and just imagine all those other ways he must have been cheating for the last 50 years. They should vacate all 68 of his professional wins and banish that guy to, say, Borneo.

DTF I live in Borneo!!
Google Kuching Sarawak it's a nice friendly, warm and cheap place to retire to. A Hilton hotel, 4 golf courses and excellent hospitals. And I think Vijay's wife is from Malaysia, so you might be right.
LOL ;0)

For some reason I was thinking Borneo was where Vijay paid his penance 25 years ago or whenever it was... Obviously I'm just joking.
