(Adds McGinley quotes) June 28 (Reuters) - World number one Jason Day and Ireland's Shane Lowry on Tuesday withdrew from August's Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games, citing fears over the Zika virus. Golf is returning to the Olympics for the first time since 1904, but a number of big names, including four-times major champion Rory McIlroy, Fiji's Vijay Singh and Charl Schwartzel of South Africa, have also pulled out due to Zika concerns.

Shane Lowry of Ireland says if the Olympics were anywhere other than Rio de Janeiro, he would be the first to show up. Instead, he is the sixth golfer to withdraw because of the Zika virus. Lowry, who got married in April, said he wants to start a family and soon and he received ''firm medical advice'' from doctors in Dublin that he should not go to Rio.

Jason Day pulled out of the Olympics on Tuesday because of the Zika virus, costing golf its No. 1 player as it returns from a century-long absence at the games. The sport has lost two of its biggest stars in the last week, adding to the perception that the Olympics are not a high priority. Rory McIlroy, a four-time major champion, also said Zika will keep from competing in Rio de Janeiro.

(Reuters) - Muirfield will hold a second vote to admit female members, the golf club confirmed, after last month's initial ballot rejected the lifting of a ban on women, leading to the historic course losing hosting rights for the British Open. The decision drew criticism from several top golfers, including four-times major winner Rory McIlroy, and Muirfield was removed from the list of courses that host Britain's Open championship by tournament organizers, the Royal and Ancient. With 64 percent of members voting in favor of admitting women in the first ballot, club captain Henry Fairweather felt a second vote would be a step towards restoring their damaged reputation.

June 27 (Reuters) - The PGA Tour will have two new title sponsors for its 2016-17 season as it reverts back to traditional dates after changes for this year to accommodate golf's return to the Olympic Games, the Tour said on Monday.
