"I cannot be 100 percent sure about my safety, and my team's safety, from the Zika virus," Matsuyama said.

"Although I am excited that golf is returning to the Olympics, I have come to the conclusion that I cannot put myself or my team member's health at risk. I have been getting information from all the concerned parties as well as my doctors about the situation in Rio."
