Golfer Marc Leishman said on Thursday he has withdrawn his candidacy for the Rio Olympics, citing the Zika virus and health concerns for his wife, becoming the first Australian athlete to withdraw over the mosquito-borne virus. Leishman, Australia's number three golfer, was first in the race to qualify for Rio alongside compatriot and world number one Jason Day after former U.S. Masters champion Adam Scott ruled himself out of the tournament last month. The Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) confirmed world number 35 Leishman had become the first prospective Australian Olympian to withdraw from Rio over the Zika virus.

Marc Leishman will not compete at the Rio Olympics golf tournament in another blow to Australia's medal hopes following Adam Scott's decision to skip the Games. Leishman, who would have represented Australia along with world number one Jason Day, withdrew citing the mosquito-borne Zika virus and health concerns for his wife. The 32-year-old's wife Audrey suffered toxic shock syndrome, a potentially fatal illness caused by bacterial infection, last year and she was still recovering, Leishman said.

Stacy Lewis is hoping that making a much-needed putt will give her a boost going into a tournament where she has thrived in the past. Lewis made a 20-foot putt to finish her second round and make the first cut last week in Texas. Now, the world's fourth-ranked player moves on to the Yokohama Tire LPGA Classic, where she won in 2012 and finished second two years later on Capitol Hill's Senator Course, part of the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail.

By Andrew Both CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (Reuters) - American 17-times PGA Tour winner Jim Furyk makes his comeback from injury at this week's Wells Fargo Championship, where Rory McIlroy is defending champion. Furyk, 45, has not played since September due to a left wrist injury that required surgery in February and he will have plenty of work to do if he is to secure a spot in his 10th consecutive Ryder Cup later this year. McIlroy is also raring to go after three weeks off, having not played since the Masters, where he tied for 10th and was not happy with aspects of his swing.

By Andrew Both CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (Reuters) - Former world number one Adam Scott says he will be glued to television coverage of the Olympic Games in August, but does not plan to watch any of the golf. Two weeks after announcing that he would skip the Rio Games, the first prominent player to do so, Scott on Wednesday spoke about his decision, saying he has not abandoned Australia and feels that he represents his nation every time he competes. "I love watching the Olympics, the swimming and athletics (track and field), absolutely," the 2013 Masters champion told Reuters, before adding that he would tune out the golf.
