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

Though to be fair, I don't think people will say "OMG, Branden Grace won't go to Rio!"... 

 

And about McDowell, it seems as though he was already long clear that he didn't want to leave home at the time his wife might be giving birth :)

Well. He is no. 11 on the World Rankings.

I honestly hope after 2020 this sport is dropped from the Olympics. With 120 quotas you can add squash and make baseball and softball at 8 teams each...

 

 

It's way, way too early to judge. I'm guessing IOC might lose patience, but if they're being fair, they wait at least until 2024.

I'm sure he would be fine with missing the birth if this was US Open or something.

I think that it's the time for remove golf by Tokyo 2024. Almost all athlete retired by games for economical reason. In a PGA if you'll finish in 4th place you'll win a lot of money instead at Olympic Games, if you'll finish in 4th place, you will not win anything.

In the PGA Tour or similar, you promote your sponsor whit clothes or similar and you receive money in return instead at Olympics you must dress whit national clothes.
