Does the PGA test for adderal?

6 posts in this topic

I was just wondring. I know in theory its supposed to help with focus and there was a big issue with the Seattle Seahawks big corner backs using but I wonder if it would improve focus as an added advantage on the golf course. Anyone familiar with PGA doping rules? I know they test but I wonder if tts narcotics only.

I don't have the anti-doping manual in front of me but Adderall is an amphetamine, so I strongly imagine they do. It's definitely not "narcotics only." Also, I believe the story with the Seahawks guys was that they said it was Adderall they tested positive for, but they NFL doesn't release the actual test results to the public, so we're going only on the word of the players. EDIT: From the PGA Tour website: I think that amphetamines would fall under "stimulants."

while i dont partake in the weed, i dont see why it's banned.

It was scienctifically formulated in a lab and proven to enchance performance - GATORADE - that other performance enhancer. Im with Bob Knight on this one.

The Florida Gators varsity team, led by legendary coach Ray Graves and fueled by Gatorade, win the coveted Orange Bowl for the first time in their history, beating the favoured Georgia Tech. In the game Gators running back Larry Smith has a 94-yard touchdown run setting an Orange Bowl record. After the game, Georgia’s coach Bobby Dodd tells Graves, “We didn’t have Gatorade – that made the difference”

This should now be on the top of the list!

But really, the "electrolytes" in Gatorade is really just dissolved salt that replaces the salt you sweat out during exercise. An electrolyte is simply something that, when ionized (dissolved) in water, conducts electricity. You could get that same salt from other sources such as beef jerky (my favorite), crackers, french fries, or anything else that has salt in it. Gatorade, however, has the benefit that it delivers the salt through something you'd drink anyways as well as encouraging you to drink more since it tastes good. That and a couple vitamins minerals that they add to the drink, which wouldn't likely provide a noticeable performance difference. The real difference is that instead of having to eat something, you get the salt through something you're going to drink plenty of anyways which ensures that you keep enough salt and water in your system.

Really Gatorade is just flavored saltwater with some vitamins and minerals, which seems much less exciting when you remove all of the cool words that are on the bottle.

On a drug test Adderall gives you a positive "Amphetamine" test.  Without a prescription I would guess that's trouble.

    • GPS, WHY ?
      If knowing the distance isn't important to you, then why would you ever choose an 8 iron for a shot instead of a 7 iron? But, if all the courses you play have plenty of easy to locate distance markers, then you probably don't need to spend a fortune on a range finder.
    • GPS, WHY ?
      As of late I have played with a few people using some sort of GPS device, which in turn  made me envious, and I have therefore been looking on the internet with a view to buying one. Then I stopped and thought, WHAT DO I NEED IT FOR. Firstly, I am not a great golfer, and the length I can hit a ball with a club varies a lot based on how well I make contact. Secondly, what if it is windy, what if it is cold, what if it is wet, and finally, what if I am hitting a ball uphill or downhill. All a GPS would help me do is estimate what club I need on a dry day, with no wind, and on a flat plain. Of course, I and can take these factors into account, in which case I would be guessing again, and then I may as well not have one anyway. Like most people, I quite often hit over the green, or leave it short, but to be honest that has more to do with my golfing skills rather than the wrong club. All courses in the UK have distance markers, and to be honest you have to be pretty stupid not to be able to work things out from there.  Needless to say, some of you would have already spent a fortune on such a device, and will reply to this post telling me how wonderful they are. So, please go ahead and convince me !!
    • My irons keep breaking
      Graphite or steel shafts? Did the shaft actually break or did the head become loose and slip off? Where did the shaft break (if it actually broke)?  Where the shaft enters the club head?
    • Your worst golf bargain
      I have had many bargains, but alas a few mistakes have been made on the way. I needed a five wood, so I went on ebay. There was a Callaway Fti nearly new, in immaculate condition with head cover. There was less than a minute to go, and it was only £33. I didn't have time to do any research on the club, but guessed it was probably worth over £100. I quickly put in a bid of £35 and won it. Only then did I have time to read about what I had bought. I wanted an 18* club with a reg flex shaft, and bought the pro version, which was 14* with a stiff flex. I attempted to strike the ball 3 times with it, and never managed to get the it off of the ground. Fortunately I managed to sell it without a loss.  I then replaced with an older Callaway FT with the correct specification, but still couldn't use it. Again, I sold it at no loss. I ended up spending £2 on a Dunlop club from a bricabrac sale, and I strike the ball wonderfully with it
