TROON, Scotland -- Rickie Fowler took to Twitter to say hes going to the Olympics. Air Jordan Schoenen Nederland . Patrick Reed confirmed at the Scottish Open that he will join him in Rio.Now its up to Jordan Spieth.With one day before the deadline to submit the American team for Rio, Spieth still has not announced whether the threat of Zika and other security concerns are enough to keep him out of the Olympics.Ty Votaw, the vice president of the International Golf Federation, said the deadline to commit for the American team is 5 p.m. at USOC headquarters in Colorado Springs, Colorado. That would be midnight at Royal Troon, where Spieth is playing the British Open.Two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson already has said he was going.Fowler played at St. Andrews upon his arrival in Scotland before coming over to Troon. Golfweek magazine reported that Peter Dawson, the former R&A chief executive who is president of the IGF, walked a few holes with Fowler on Saturday at the Old Course.Reed, No. 13 in the world, was first alternate for the Americans when Dustin Johnson withdrew on Friday because of the Zika virus. Reed had said earlier in the week he wanted to play, then said he would need to talk to his family after hearing that Johnson had pulled out.I got the email and phone call from Team USA last night and I went through a lot of things with them, and were all in, Reed said after finishing his final round at Castle Stuart. We cant wait to go and play for USA and have some fun.He said the decision took a little more than an hour, mainly because of the time difference with his wife at home. He was not part of the USA Golf meeting two weeks ago in Ohio because he was not among the top four Americans qualified for the team at the time.Reed said Zika and security were his only concerns.Yes, its a risk, but I feel its a risk that we are all willing to take, Reed said. Just thinking about having a gold medal means a lot. I think the biggest thing is I get to represent my country again. Get to wear red, white and blue. Any time I get to wear those colors, its a huge day.If Spieth chooses not to play, the fourth American would be Matt Kuchar, who went up to No. 15 in the world by a narrow margin by making a 12-foot birdie putt on the final hole at the Bridgestone Invitational to tie for third.Countries are allowed a maximum of four golfers provided they are in the top 15 in the world ranking; otherwise, countries are limited to no more than two players until the 60-man field is set.Spieth had spoken highly of playing in the Olympics until recent months over concerns about security in Rio and uncertainty about the mosquito-borne Zika virus.And if I feel like theres any significant threat, then is it worth it? Probably not, Spieth said two weeks ago at the Bridgestone Invitational. I dont train my whole life ... to play in the Olympics like some of those athletes, but now that it has presented itself, it is something very significant Id love to be a part of. Do I think Ill be there in four years time? Im confident that yes. But also, it would be cool to be part of the first one.Golf has commitments from seven of the top 13 players in the world. But if Spieth were to withdraw, none of the top four would be in Rio. Jason Day, Johnson and Rory McIlroy already have withdrawn, citing the Zika virus. Jordan Nederland Kopen . Jason Zucker and Matt Cooke also scored for Minnesota, which has won five of six. Kuemper made five saves in the first, nine in the second, and nine in the third. The rookies best save came with 2:17 left in the third period when he denied former Wild forward Matt Cullen from just outside of the crease on the right side. Jordan Korting . P.A. Parenteau scored early in the third period to help the Avs edge Toronto 2-1 on Tuesday night. Cory Sarich also scored for Colorado (3-0-0), which is off to its best ever start. http://www.airjordannederland.com/ . A big centre with all the tools to be an elite player, Johansen paced the Blue Jackets with a standout game Saturday night. He had a goal and two assists for a career-high three points as Columbus beat the New York Islanders 5-2 to snap a five-game losing streak. Luke Tarrant has the chance to burst back into the stakes-winning ranks aboard Cylinder Beach in the Recognition Stakes at Eagle Farm.Tarrant has been back riding for three months after serving a suspension for drug-related offences and has been working hard to rebuild his career.He has ridden 13 winners since his return with six in the metropolitan area including Top Tone at Eagle Farm on Saturday.Tarrant is no stranger to big race success with his major wins the 2014 Group Two Villiers Stakes (Rudy) and the 2015 Magic Millions 2YO Classic (Le Chef).Trainer Desleigh Forster booked Tarrant to ride Cylinder Beach in Saturdays Listed Recognition Stakes (1400m) with several of her regular riders committed to other runners.Brad Pengelly has been riding Cylinder Beach in trackwork but the gelding is likely to get the minimum 54kg, below the jockeys weight range.Forster said Tarrant had ridden a few horses for her lately and she was impressed with his attitude.I had to act quickly because Jim Byrne is expected to ride Rudy and Robbie Fradd is wanted for Frespanol, Forster saiid. Air Jordan Nederland. uke can ride light and he has plenty of big race experience.Forster expects Cylinder Beach to race well despite a two-week delay to his return.The winner of the Group Three Gunsynd Stakes during the winter Cylinder Beachs original comeback run was washed out by a heavy storm at Doomben.Forster then elected not to run him in the Listed Keith Noud Quality on Saturday won by stablemate Too Good To Refuse.Cylinder Beach is working well and he is fit enough to run well at the 1400 metres in the Recognition Stakes, she said.Forster will not continue with Too Good To Refuses Brisbane campaign if she feels he is harshly treated by handicappers.Too Good To Refuse could rise by as much as 10 points from his current 84 rating for his Keith Noud win.He isnt a big horse and if I think he is being harshly treated at the weights I will have no hesitation to switch his campaign to Sydney. There are plenty of races there for him, Forster said. ' ' '
