RENO, Nev. – Camilo Villegas of Colombia is weighing the Zika virus and his job in deciding whether to play in the Olympics.

Villegas said Thursday at the Barracuda Championship that he and his wife are trying to have children, and Zika is a concern. He also has his PGA Tour card to worry about. He is No. 142 in the FedEx Cup. Only the top 125 keep their cards.

To play in the Olympics would mean missing at least one PGA Tour event that he might need to play. Villegas says he has been excited about the Olympics from the start. He says he's in a similar position as other players who have withdrawn because of Zika.

Villegas says he hopes to finish well this week and then decide on the Olympics.
