High on the Greens: Pro Golfer Robert Garrigus Suspended for Cannabis Use

PGA Tour player Robert Garrigus likes to smoke pot. In 2011, he revealed that in 2002 "plenty of guys on the Nationwide Tour smoked... You could go in the Porta John and take your drags." The golfer spent 45 days in a rehap clinic in 2003 for alcohol abuse.

Fast forward to March 22, 2019 when Garrigus was suspended by the association for testing positive to a "drug of abuse," which he said was marijuana.

In a statement posted at Twitter, Garrigus note that a "relapse" led to the suspension:

Garrigus won the Children's Miracle Network Classic in 2010 and placed third in the U.S. Open in 2011.
