“You only can’t do it all, given the anew beaten agenda. Dustin and others erudite a lot about themselves and what works for the last year, so I clap him for not overextending himself and keeping his personal priorities in line.”
Johnson also chose to skip the Olympic 2016 in Rio de Janeiro due to concerns over the Zika virus, per Harig. The Olympic title, which will be defended by Great Britain’s Justin Rose, will begin just 11 days after the conclusion of the British Open. The tour calendar sees a host of competitions before the Open, comprising the U.S. Open and the World Golf Championship.
After the Olympic 2020, the world’s highest players will feature at the FedEx Cup playoffs, the BMW Championship and the Tour Championship, and it looks the 35-year-old is absorbed on additional major titles to his 2016 U.S. Open win.
Johnson’s decision shouldn’t impact the country’s chances of winning medals in the golf competition. Ten of the top 15 in the world hail from the U.S., including Tiger Woods, Justin Thomas, and Brooks Koepka. Just four Americans will be able to contest, and they will be determined by the World Golf Ranking. Koepka lately said he’s to come to “see where all different fall” before obligating to playing at the Olympic 2020.
