World No. 1 golfer Dustin Johnson to skip Tokyo Olympics

Japan Times -- Mar 15
World No. 1 Dustin Johnson confirmed on Saturday he did not put his name forward for a spot on the U.S. team for this summer’s Tokyo Olympics and will instead focus on the PGA Tour.

Johnson, who said he had not given the Olympics much thought, did not sign up to be included in the pool of golfers seeking one of four possible berths.

Up to four players from a country can qualify for the Summer Games provided all four are in the top 15 of the world rankings after the U.S. Open in June.

There are currently 11 Americans, including Johnson, in the top 15. - Japan Times
