(Reuters) – Former British Open champion Louis Oosthuizen on Thursday became the third high-profile golfer to withdraw from this summer’s Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, citing family and schedule issues. South African Oosthuizen follows what could become a pattern, started last week by Fiji’s former world number one Vijay Singh and continued on Tuesday by Australia’s 2013 Masters champion Adam Scott. “I have always represented South Africa with pride so didn’t make my decision without a great deal of thought,” 2010 British Open winner Oosthuizen said in a statement released by his management company.
