Nick Faldo speaks about drugs in golf

The PGA Tour does not have a policy against steroids, and six-time major winner Nick Faldo says golf doesn't need one. 

"It's been clean forever, probably because we've proven there's nothing out there we can take to enhance our performance," Faldo said on Tuesday.  

"So there's no point looking. Golf has a very good reputation and, fortunately, nothing in the wings is going to dent it." 

Faldo said anyone who uses banned substances is cheating. And even if there were such a substance that would help a golfer's performance, the game's honor code and the stigma of cheating would prevail. 

"If you cheat with a pencil, you're gone for life," he said. "There's no soft stuff, where you go to six weeks of rehab to learn how to put in a '4' instead of a '3.'  

"The bottom line is they're just cheating. And if you want to play golf, you forget about that from day one."
