The Rio Olympics continue to see star athletes drop out due to the Zika virus and to this point, Olympic golf is getting hit the hardest so far. 

The number one golfer in the world, Jason Day, announced on Tuesday that he would not play in the Olympics due to the virus. His announcement came less than a week after Rory McIlroy announced that he was not going to play. 

Golf is returning to the Olympics for the first time since 1904. 

GoLocal teams with Graphiq to show the athletes pulling out due to Zika, a profile of Jason Day and charts on the Zika virus.
