WADA stresses need for transparencyLOS ANGELES - The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has applauded steps taken by golf to combat doping but believes more could be done to achieve full transparency in its policing.
The agency’s comments come after little-known American Doug Barron on Monday became the first golfer to receive a ban for taking a performance-enhancing drug. The PGA Tour has suspended the player for a year and did not name the drug. The PGA Tour anti-doping program is based in large part on the global rules promulgated in the World Anti-Doping Code.
