Adam Scott joins Dustin Johnson in opting out of Summer Olympics in Tokyo (golfweek.usatoday.com)

Five weeks after World No. 1 Dustin Johnson said he won’t play in the Summer Olympics, Adam Scott has done likewise.

In a Golf Channel report, Scott’s agent confirmed the news.

“With the world being the way it is, Adam is gone 4-5 weeks at a time this year during his playing blocks,” Johan Elliot said in a statement to GolfChannel.com. “With three young children at home, this time in the schedule will be devoted to family. It is pretty much the only time up until October when he has a chance to see them for a stretch of time and not only a few days/a week.”
