Steroids On The Green?

Gary Player thinks steroids have crept their way into professional golf. Now anyone who plays golf knows two things:

1) Golf is as much about mental toughness as it is about physical ability. And the physical ability isn't all that much about muscular strength.

2) You can pound the ball 400 yards if you want, but if you suck around the greens, you won't have a chance at any golf tournament anywhere. You also have to hit the ball straight. Neither of these can be improved by drugs.

So if golfers are taking steroids, they must not only be jerks but they must also be colossally stupid. Unless they're taking some sort of nerve-calming drug, that is.
