Rory McIlroy: Still a member of Fab Four

"I, on average, probably get tested four to five times a year which is very little compared to the rest of the Olympic sports", he said.

The Olympics has been a thorny subject for the 27-year-old who, after initially citing the Zika virus as his main reason for pulling out, has since made his feelings abundantly clear saying, for him, the Games are not the pinnacle of the sport.

"It has been intensely frustrating".

Rory McIlroy's "lack of appreciation" for the Olympics is "unacceptable" and golf's place should be reconsidered, says squash player Laura Massaro.

Jordan Spieth delivered the final blow Monday when he told the International Golf Federation he would not be going to Rio next month, leaving the sport without its four highest-ranked players who have captured six of the last eight majors.

Squash, played in more than 185 countries, has made great strides in modernizing the sport, with the PSA taking the game to iconic venues such as New York's Grand Central Station. "And just at the time that I had to make the decision, I just felt this was the right move for me". But whether there's something out there where it can make you an overall better player, I'm not sure.

"If this can be guaranteed by WADA in Rio, then of course we would go to Rio", Bach added. "I got into golf to win championships, and major championships".

"Jason's in front of me pretty well, so just got to keep putting myself in position to win golf tournaments and keep getting it done".

McIlroy missed last year's British Open at St. Andrews after tearing a ligament in his left ankle playing soccer with his buddies, denying him a chance to defend the title he won in 2014. The women will have the top nine in the world; Ha-Na Jang at No. 10 is not eligible because South Korea already reached its maximum of four players. "Therefore, there's nothing I can do about it except go on and try to again focus on this week". But at the same time, that's not the reason I got into golf. But I'm happy where my game is. That should put to rest three days of consternation about another tournament - the Olympics - that doesn't have almost the history or the tradition of golf's oldest championship. With the Olympics drug testing being much more stringent, it will lead some to wonder if some golfers are skipping the Rio games to avoid the more stringent tests.

The suspension has been an embarrassment for local organizers and a major headache for the International Olympic Committee, which could be forced to send blood and urine samples overseas for testing if the lab remains closed. "For Dustin, I think it was just the floodgates opening, which I've said for a long time now".
