Suspended for a year after not taking a post-round drug test, PGA Tour player Mark Hensby says he's remorseful and also disturbed by the length of his suspension given that he did not actually test positive for a performance enhancing drug.
Eamon Lynch reports for Golfweek on Hensby's spirits after his year-long suspension started and after joining some other little-known players who have received very stiff sentences for their mistakes.
Hensby insists a brighter star would have been treated differently.
“Maybe they did make an example of me. PGA Tour players talk. We all know what goes on. I believe there are guys who are higher-profile players that have probably tested positive and it’s gone by the wayside. Unless you have proof of that …” His voice trails off and he shrugs his shoulders. “The Tour’s always going to say that’s not true.”
