Golfer Scott McCarron is signing a deal with a hemp oil manufacturer, the company sponsoring him announced on Wednesday.
Colorado-based Functional Remedies said McCarron would be the company's brand ambassador.
Hemp oil contains cannabinoids that some people believe provide health and recovery benefits. It can contain as much as .3% delta 9 THC.
"Most people don’t realize the incredible level of mental stress and anxiety that comes with pro golf. In order to continue playing and performing at the highest level, I need to take care of the one body I have."
McCarron, has won three times on the PGA Tour but now plays mainly on the 50-and-over Champions circuit, where he has been a dominant player, with eight victories.
