(Reuters) - Top Chinese woman golfer Shanshan Feng will compete at the Rio Games despite concerns over Zika virus and the world number 12 says she fears for the sport's Olympic future following some high-profile withdrawals from the men's competition. Golf's return to Olympics for the first time since 1904 has been hit by pullouts by several top male golfers, including world number one Jason Day, multiple major champion Rory McIlroy, Fiji's Vijay Singh and Charl Schwartzel of South Africa. The mosquito-borne Zika virus, which the World Health Organization says is spreading rapidly in the Americas, can cause crippling defects in babies and has been linked to the neurological disorder Guillain-Barre in adults.

Dustin Johnson was on the range at Firestone for an hour and was lucky if he hit more than a dozen shots. Johnson doesn't always have much to say, but his smile on the eve of the Bridgestone Invitational said it all. This is the third World Golf Championship of the year (for every tour but Europe), and because of the Olympics, it comes at strange time.

(Reuters) - An Olympic gold medal was not the pinnacle of the sport for golfers according to world number four Rory McIlroy, and he had no concerns about his decision to withdraw from the Rio de Janeiro Games. The Northern Irishman withdrew from the Rio Games last week, citing concerns about the Zika virus, though he also told British media the Olympics were not one of his goals. "Most other athletes dream their whole lives of competing in the Olympics, winning an Olympic gold, and we haven't," McIlroy told British media.

Recently Mariah Stackhouse was flipping through some old photos, and she came across a few of herself playing golf when she was just a little kid. Stackhouse just wrapped her college career at Stanford, where she was a four-year All-American.

Rich Berberian Jr. rallied to win the PGA Professional Championship on Wednesday, holing a 30-foot birdie putt on the final hole for a one-stroke victory. The 28-year-old Berberian, a PGA assistant professional from Derry, New Hampshire, topped the 20 qualifiers for the PGA Championship next month at Baltusrol in New Jersey. Berberian shot a 3-under 69 at Turning Stone's Atunyote Golf Club, overcoming a triple bogey on the par-5 12th with birdies on the par-4 13th, par-3 16th and the par-5 18th.

U.S. Open champion Dustin Johnson is planning to play in the Olympics, and he said a meeting with USA Golf helped clear up a few concerns. The meeting had been planned long before Rory McIlroy and Jason Day pulled out of the Olympics in the past week, both citing concerns about the Zika virus. USA Golf is the national governing body for golf in the United States.

AKRON, Ohio (AP) -- The U.S. Open trophy was on the kitchen table in Dustin Johnson's home in South Florida. That was by design.
