Spieth to skip Olympics

By  | 

TROON, Scotland (AP) -- Jordan Spieth is out of the Olympics.

International Golf Federation president Peter Dawson announced the decision at the British Open. Spieth had been strongly debating whether to go over the last three days before reaching his decision on Monday.

He will be replaced by Matt Kuchar.

That means golf's return to the Olympics after 112-year absence will not include the top four players in the world -- Jason Day, Dustin Johnson, Spieth, and Rory McIlroy.
