TROON, Scotland — Rickie Fowler said on Twitter that he’s going to the Olympics, and Patrick Reed, the former University High golfer, said he would be joining him in Rio.
All that’s left to fill out the four-man American team is Jordan Spieth.
Spieth said he has not yet decided whether to play, though a decision is due Monday.
Ty Votaw, 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 in the British Open.
Two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson already has said he was going.
“Looking forward to wearing some red white and blue in Rio,” Fowler tweeted Sunday.
Reed, No. 13 in the world, was the first alternate for the Americans before 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 we’re all in,” Reed said after finishing his final round at Castle Stuart. “We can’t 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, it’s a risk, but I feel it’s 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, it’s 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.
