A federal judge has denied Doug Barron a temporary injunction against his one year suspension by the PGA Tour for testing positive to banned substances. Barron had sought the injunction so that he could compete in Q School, but Judge Tu M. Pham said that would unfairly impact other players also seeking to qualify. Judge Pham reasoned that if Barron loses his lawsuit, a player bumped for Barron would be irrevocably harmed.
Barron has said that the substances he tested positive for were prescribed by doctors: a beta blocker for his heart, and testosterone for a a low hormone condition.
This is going to get ugly.
