Starting Next Year, The Only Thing You May Be Able to Smoke on the Golf Course Is Your Driver


One of my favorite Lewis Black sketches ever is when he talks about how nobody knows if certain food is good or bad for you anymore, and asks the audience, simply,  "Is milk good or bad for you?" The audiences tosses a collection of "yes" and "no's" at Black where he replies, "I rest my case."

But if you ask anyone in the world if cigarettes are bad for you, they'd quickly answer, "Yes." They might even answer, "Yes of course," or even, "are you a complete f-ing moron?" 

Thing is, don't tell that to the World Anti Doping Agency, who might put nicotine on their list of performance enhancing drugs (I'll allow you a second to laugh) in 2012. 

Here is the full quote, via Alex Miceli of Golfweek

“It is not WADA’s intention to target smokers, rather to monitor the effects nicotine can have on performance when taken in oral tobacco products such as snus,” Terence O’Rorke, a spokesman for the WADA, wrote to Golfweek in an email. “The sole purpose (of including nicotine on the monitoring list) is to collect data on the potential abuse of nicotine as a performance enhancer.”

Go read the Golfweek story for quotes from certain players, but I'll let you guess if the smokers/dippers are happy about this.

If nicotine is a performance enhancing drug, the homeless guy that always sits outside my apartment better get him a set of clubs, because he might be the next Arnold Palmer.
