The hits to Olympic Golf just keep on coming.

South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen, the No. 12-ranked player in the world, announced that he will not compete when golf returns to the Olympics at the Rio Games in August.

"I have always represented South Africa with pride, so I didn't make my decision without a great deal of thought," Oosthuizen said in a statement. "I would like to wish our golfers and all other athletes competing in Brazil all the very best for success."

The former Open champion is the third eligible men's golfer to declare his intention to skip the competition, joining Australia's Adam Scott and Fiji's Vijay Singh, both of whom cited the PGA Tour's busy summer schedule as factors in their decisions.
