Golf has some very early starting times. I think it will be very popular to watch at the start of the day. :d

And that's Jason Day out of the Olympics as well, "because of Zika".

I wonder what their excuse would have been if Zika wasn't an issue. It's hard to paint everyone with the same brush, but the fact no women have withdrawn due to the virus paints a telling picture. At least golfers from the US and Great Britain have remained (so far).

Tennis had the same problem in 1988. The only difference is that golf will only have one more chance to get it right while tennis got to wait until the old generation to move out

That's why I expected the US to be the first nation to withdraw.

Though I do agree that zika seems like the easy way out, I do believe that some of them are actually worried. I believe that it's a matter of how they look at the tournament. Men's golf is already popular in many countries, meaning that they don't have as much to win with the olympic participation as women's golf.

What I mean is that it is a tournament that is easier to miss for the best men, who will more or less get the same attention during the majors, while the women will without doubt get more during the Olympics.

 

It's still not positive, but I do actually believe that zika is the reason for at least some players.
