Garcia commits to Olympics


Sergio Garcia will compete at the Rio Olympics despite concerns over the Zika virus.

Golf is on the Olympic schedule for the first time since 1904 but its return has been overshadowed by the decision of Jason Day, Rory McIlroy, Shane Lowry, Vijay Singh and Charl Schwartzel to withdraw due to the virus, which has can cause birth defects in infants.

Despite the concerns, Garcia has committed to representing Spain at the Olympics.

"I know there r some dangers but representing Spain, trying to make golf grow & becoming an Olympian r too important so I'll be at @Olympics," he posted on Twitter.

Brendon de Jonge, meanwhile, has decided not to travel to Brazil in order to focus his energy on retaining his PGA Tour card.

De Jonge has missed the cut in 15 of his 19 starts this year and he will lose his Tour Card for the 2016-17 season if he fails to climb into the top 125 in the FedEx Cup standings by the end of the Wyndham Championship on August 21.

"The reason for my decision is not my concern about the Zika virus," de Jonge explained.

"It is truly a business decision. It would have been a great honour to play for my country.

"I am truly disappointed but my current position on the FedEx Cup points list does not allow me the luxury to skip the John Deere Classic or the Travelers Championship. This has to be a priority for me and my family."
