British golfer Mel Reid will miss the Evian Championship this week in France to qualify for the Olympics.
The 33-year-old world number 38 cited Monday’s new travel restrictions for his removal.
Quarantining for 10 days upon his return from the tournament, which begins Thursday, would mean missing the Games.
“The risk of missing out on the unique opportunity to compete as an Olympian is just too high,” Reid said in a statement.
“Incredibly disappointed to withdraw from the Evian Championship this year due to the recently implemented travel rules which prevent returning to the UK from France in time for the team’s Olympic departure.
“I have worked tirelessly with my team and the LPGA to find a way to compete in the two, but unfortunately at this point there is no guarantee of firm solutions.”
The Evian Championship is one of the two major tournaments of the Ladies European Tour.
Reid captured a career LPGA victory last October at the ShopRite LPGA Classic.
Jodi Ewart Shadoff is the other female on the Team GB golf team, which also includes Paul Casey and Tommy Fleetwood.
