:AUS Australia's Marc Leishman has withdrawn citing Zika virus fears.

Mostly citing fears of his wife contracting Zika after getting a life threatening infection last year, right? That's a little different than just "I think I might get Zika, so I won't go"..

Rory McIlroy has joined the list of players withdrawing because of zika.

It's funny that only the men are withdrawing from the Olympics due to fear of the Zika virus.

 

McIloroy's is the type of golfer that would cause a mass exodus from the tournament. Say goodbye to golf at future Olympics past 2020.

Which would be incredibly stupid, because the number of withdrawals this year basically means nothing.

It means a lot. The only thing keeping this from being a complete disaster (assuming more withdrawals, it's actually not so bad right now) is that the women's side is intact. First impressions are important and for a sport that barely made the Olympics. They would have to be fully committed in 2020 if they want to stay (or the IOC gets a lot of revenue regardless of the strength of field).

As it stands, the first men's tennis tournament in 1988 was worse. Only three top ten tennismen were in Seoul

Branden Grace is next to withdraw, meaning that the 3 best south african golfers will not go.

Graeme McDowell as well. 

The only positive thing is that it may give 2 of the good old players a chance as Padraig Harrington is next in line for Ireland and Retief Goosen isn't that far away for South Africa
