The PGA Tour dropped its doping case against Vijay Singh based on new information from the World Anti-Doping Agency, which said using deer-antler spray is no longer prohibited because it contains such small amounts of a growth hormone factor. Tour commissioner Tim Finchem declined to say Tuesday what kind of suspension Singh had faced. The television viewer who reported the illegal drop Tiger Woods took during the second round of the Masters was more than just a golf fan. Sports Illustrated reported it was David Eger , a rules expert who has worked for the USGA and the PGA Tour.

Early in yesterday's Univest Cyclosportif 100K through rural Montgomery County, the 2006 Tour de France winner, who served as a celebrity starter, suddenly veered away from the pack and headed down a remote country road. Alone. Organizers of the recreational ride, held in conjunction with the 107.3-mile Univest Grand Prix for pro cyclers, had promised he'd be available for interviews and handshakes. Now they'd lost their star attraction.

Tour de France champion Floyd Landis claims more mistakes were made in his doping case, this time involving technicians who handled his two positive urine samples. Landis' attorneys say the cyclist's positive doping tests could be invalidated because the same technicians were allowed to work on both samples. Lab rules prohibit technicians from participating in both tests to prevent them from validating their own findings. Landis, a Lancaster County native, and his attorneys are focusing on this possible violation because a similar error at the Chatenay-Malabry lab outside Paris in 2005 resulted in the dismissal of doping charges against Spanish cyclist Inigo Landaluce.

The arbitration hearing in Regina Jacobs' doping case is scheduled for Sunday, the same day she might be trying to win her 13th national title in the 1,500 meters at the U.S. Olympic trials. Her lawyer, Edward Williams, said in a telephone interview yesterday that the hearing before three arbitrators will begin in the morning and, if necessary, break for the women's 1,500 final at 8 p.m. EDT. If the American Arbitration Association hearing has not been completed by that time, Williams said, it will resume after the race.

Tests performed on Floyd Landis' initial urine sample showed that some of the testosterone in his body came from an external source and was not naturally produced by his own system, the New York Times reported on its Web site last night, citing a person at the International Cycling Union with knowledge of the results. The finding contradicts Landis' defense last week after the disclosure that he tested positive for an elevated ratio of testosterone to epitestosterone after his decisive performance in Stage 17 of the Tour de France.

Sprinter Jerome Young, a central figure in a doping case that could cost the U.S. relay team its gold medal from the 2000 Olympics, was banned for life by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency yesterday following his second positive test for drugs. Young tested positive for the banned drug EPO at a Paris meet in July, USADA said. He is thought to be the first sprinter to test positive for EPO, which is popular with endurance runners and cyclists. Young tested positive for the steroid nandrolone in 1999, but was exonerated by a U.S. appeals panel in July 2000, avoiding a 2-year ban. He ran in the opening and semifinal rounds of the Sydney Olympics, but not in the 1,600-meter final anchored by Michael Johnson.

U.S. OPEN rain delays at Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York will be no more by 2017. The tournament's center court could be covered by a retractable roof as soon as the 2016 tournament, but more likely the following year, U.S. Tennis Association officials said. The men's final has been delayed to Monday each of the last 5 years. The U.S. Open becomes the last of the four major tournaments to cover up. The Ashe roof is part of a $550 million project that also will rebuild and expand other courts at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.

The ATP Tour will not reopen a doping case against Andre Agassi even though he admitted to lying about using crystal meth in 1997. Agassi revealed in his recent autobiography that he failed a 1997 drug test, a result he says was thrown out after he lied by claiming he "unwittingly" took crystal meth. However, ATP chairman Adam Helfant said yesterday that there was no way to sanction the American retroactively since he has retired from tennis. "There has been a lot of speculation about whether the ATP would reopen the case, but we cannot do that because he's no longer playing on the tour," Helfant said at the ATP World Tour Finals in London.

The results of Caster Semenya's gender tests are expected to arrive at the IAAF headquarters in London any day, and it's unlikely the world 800-meter champion will lose her gold medal. IAAF spokesman Nick Davies told the Associated Press yesterday that it would take about 2 weeks for a group of medics and anti-doping experts at track and field's international governing body to analyze the results. Speculation about South African's gender was sparked by stunning improvements in times coupled with her muscular build and deep voice.

Smiling and appearing relaxed, Floyd Landis did not look like a man who has been steeped in controversy for nearly a year. Landis, the 2006 Tour de France champion, yesterday appeared at the opening of a supermarket in Harleysville, Upper Salford Township, and was there to also celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Univest Grand Prix bike race, to be held Sept. 8-9 in Souderton.
