Rio Olympics 2016After weighing up all the options and discussing it with my family and the Hooked on Golf Blog team, I have decided that due to the health concerns surrounding the Zika virus I will not be participating in the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio. Though the odds are low, my medical staff has confirmed that there is a potential risk of harm to me and my family and I’m not willing to take that risk.

It is with great sadness that I had to make this difficult decision. I was looking forward to being considered to compete in Rio and representing my country. I hope that HOG readers can understand this difficult decision and respect my position.

In closing I thank all those who have supported me in my golf career. I send my best regards and wishes to the the participants who will be teeing it up this summer in Rio.

FORE!
