Adam Scott too busy for Olympics

Management company confirms he’s not going

Adam Scott too busy for OlympicsAdam Scott is too busy to try and win a gold medal at the Rio Olympic Games.

The world number 7 explained that his busy schedule and family life meant he was unable to commit to being part of the Australian team in Brazil.

"My decision has been taken as a result of an extremely busy playing schedule around the time of the Olympics and other commitments, both personal and professional," Scott said in a statement issued via his management company.

"I have informed the Australian team captain [Ian Baker-Finch] and relevant authorities, who are understanding of my position and I wish the Australian Olympic team the very best of luck in Rio."

We’ve all known for a while that Adam wasn’t keen on the Olympics, but this puts an official wrap on it.
