PGA Players Saying No To Rio



If the International Olympic Committee was looking to expand interest in the IOC’s two week sports event held every four years, the Summer Games, it appears the zika virus is going to take a major toll. Rory McIlroy is the latest golfer to drop out of the event.  Mark Leishman, Adam Scott, Charl Schwartzel, Louis Oosthuizen and Vijay Singh will also be missing. But the golfers aren’t the only ones thinking of saying no to Rio.
