golf's not a team sport and these are paid professionals   give the olympics back to the ams

He’ll fly anywhere halfway around the world if he’s getting paid. Represent your country for free? Nah. 

Olympics are worthless.

This is the first I heard of this.  Is this old news? Why?

How did you hear this? Read an article or just the headline?

All is answered....

https://sports.yahoo.com/dustin-johnson-decides-again-not-205425515.html

Johnson didn't want to go to Tokyo a year ago, before the COVID-19 pandemic led to a one-year delay, because of a crammed summer schedule and his desire to stay fresh for the PGA Tour's postseason that culminates with the FedEx Cup.

Can you really blame them though? Not like these guys all have $200 million contracts like the NBA guys. They have to tee it up for a paycheck and Olympic Gold doesn't match a major championship in prestige or pay. They represent their country in the Predident's cup and Ryder cup. Olympic golf should be college kids imo.

Yes, I blame him if the excuse if it’s too far away

The summer Olympics are in a rough part of the season on the PGA schedule. I agree with those above, it should be the Ams playing.

 Maybe he doesn't want the drug test ??

They are already drug tested currently. Not sure how many players actually are.

Tiger’s injury stinks for a number of reasons, but it also means Tiger is going to miss the Olympics. It would have been tough for him to make the team, but I respect Tiger’s desire to represent his country. I wish Dustin felt the same way.

The Olympic committee  should just change the qualifications to top-15 

 

Or your name is Tiger Woods

 

The host nation can stipulate that TW is not allowed to drive under any circumstances, of course.

IOC testing protocol different than the tour's? Asking for a friend.

It’s the same I believe. The Tour had to adopt them to be able to send players to the Olympics.

If it’s worth anything. I could qualify tomorrow, and i wouldn’t go.  I have zero desire to go there or be on a plane that long.  Period.

Perhaps DJ is more like Weiskopf than you? Weiskopf skipped a Ryder Cup to go hunting.  You find the Olympics to be a big deal and he evidently considers his pro career to be more important to him.

 

Neither is wrong but one should not be forced on the other.

At least Weiskopf played in two Ryder Cups. 
 

DJ finds appearance fees more important, not his pro career.

I wouldn’t like to travel that far either. But I didn’t fly to Saudi Arabia in February.

If he's being honest w himself he'll regret it one day.

Too unique of an opportunity.

Everybody remembers Justin Rose won gold.

He's already rich and top of the class. I could see it being a harder decision if he was really just starting to make a name and needed to play x tourneys to keep his card.

I honestly had forgot until you said that.   I barely remember watching them play.  And I don’t worship the olympics.  It’s a literal den of thieves.
