Rio Games on Friday because of concerns over the Zika virus, costing golf three of the worlds top four players for its return to Antworten

DALLAS -- U.S. Open champion Dustin Johnson withdrew from the Rio Games on Friday because of concerns over the Zika virus, costing golf three of the worlds top four players for its return to the Olympics after a 112-year absence.Jordan Spieth is the only player from the top four who has not said if he is going to Brazil.

I believe I am making the right decision for me and most importantly, my family. While I am sure some will be critical of my decision, my hope is that most will understand and support it.The decision follows a meeting at the Bridgestone Invitational with USA Golf in which the leading four Americans were briefed on Zika and security concerns. Johnson had called it a productive meeting and that he was planning to play, though he still wanted a few more answers.Of the top four Americans, only two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson said he is going.Golf was last an Olympic sport in 1904 in St. Louis.Nine of the 13 players who have withdrawn are among the top 30 in the world -- Day, Johnson, McIlroy, Adam Scott, Branden Grace, Louis Oosthuizen, Hideki Matsuyama and Shane Lowry.
