Australian golfer Adam Scott has withdrawn his name from consideration for a berth at the Tokyo Olympics, joining top-ranked Dustin Johnson in opting out, according to the Golf Channel.
Johan Elliot, Scott’s manager, told the network that the timing of the July 29-August 1 tournament in Japan doesn’t fit into the Aussie’s schedule.

“With the world being the way it is, Adam is gone 4-5 weeks at a time this year during his playing blocks,” Elliot told the Golf Channel in a statement.
