IGF Statement on Graeme McDowell’s unavailability for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games
We recognise the unique circumstances for Graeme and his family and, while we are disappointed that he is not available for the Olympic Games, we sympathise with his position. There are many considerations for players but those who compete will have the opportunity to be part of a truly global celebration of sport.”
