Greg Kraft sues PGA Tour over illness

American golfer Greg Kraft has issued a lawsuit against the PGA for an alleged failure to safeguard the health of players, according to a report.

The 39-year-old, who lost his tour card this year, says he caught valley fever at the Tucson Open in February 2002.

"The Tour had a responsibility to its players," Kraft's attorney Leonard Decof told a Florida newspaper.

Valley fever is caused by soil in areas of low rainfall - mainly the USA and Mexico - and affects the lungs.

"They should have known about this," added Decof.

"If golfers are going to be playing under conditions that could be dangerous or life-threatening, the Tour should know about it and warn them."
