Drug testing for the PGA Tour? Let's start with commissioner Tim Finchem
What’s ludicrous about Finchem’s latest mess is that we’re even having this discussion. As ESPN Radio’s Colin Cowherd said today, “Testing PGA players for steroids is like looking for Paris Hilton’s mensa score. There’s nothing there.”
I won’t go that far; it’s entirely possible some players have taken a few supplements. But is it something that’s threatening the core of the game? Aren’t there any bigger issues out there? Maybe it’s just me, but when I see a group shot of Phil Mickelson, Jason Gore and Colin Montgomerie, I’m thinking six-dollar burgers, not steroids.
In case Tiger fails to provide any other bright ideas to Finchem, I thought I’d jot a few down. Perhaps we could spend a little more effort on making golf affordable for everyone? What about upgrading the marketing budget so the average fan learns there’s more to the Tour than Phil, Tiger and Daly? And have we really resolved all the equipment issues?
Must be nice, having to look for things to worry about. We should all have Finchem’s problems.

Never heard Rome talk about that. I don't like Rome's delivery and I think most radio people have some kind of inferiority complex to TV folks which causes them to say outrageous things with little substance, but I usually agree with his points.
And you use the Google comment like its a diss or something. I'm proud of what I've accomplished on the 21st century's new God (at least for those of us who get paychecks based on its rankings. I sacrifice a baby goldfish every night for Google, look where its gotten me).
I don't think testing is that big an inconvenience. For golf to be up front wouldn't hurt.
Oh god, here we go again...
