Louis Oosthuizen on skipping Olympics: 'They didn't really make it easy for us' (

Louis Oosthuizen, after yet another tough major loss, is back on the PGA Tour this week. He’s one of the marquee names teeing it up at the 3M Open, which comes less than a week after his third-place finish at the Open Championship at Royal St. George’s.

On Wednesday, speaking to the media for the first time since Saturday at The Open, Oosthuizen touched on his heartbreaking loss, why he didn’t speak to the media on Sunday night and more. He also discussed his reasoning for opting out of the Olympics.

Oosthuizen is among a handful of big-name players to pass on the Olympic Games in Japan, which are July 29-Aug. 1 for the men. In short: there’s a lot going on right now.
