An Byeong-Hu Suspended For Doping Violation

  • An Byeong-hun banned for doping violation by PGA Tour.

South Korea’s An Byeong-hun has been suspended by the PGA Tour for three months because of a doping violation.

The 32-year-old – who won the DP World Tour’s flagship BMW PGA Championship in 2015 – tested positive for a substance banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency.

It was contained in a cough medicine available over the counter in the home country of the world number 53.

“He has co-operated fully with the tour throughout the process and accepted his suspension,” the PGA Tour said.

An’s suspension is retroactive to 31 August, so he is able to return to competition on 1 December.

The 2019 Presidents Cup player, who recorded four top-10 finishes in 31 events on the 2022-23 PGA Tour, last played on the US-based circuit in August’s BMW Championship.
