GOLF AT THE OLYMPIC GAMES
In 2016, golf made its historic return to the Olympic Games for the first time in 112 years, dating back to when Canadian George S. Lyon won gold for Canada at St. Louis 1904.
The field for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games golf competition will include 60 women and 60 men competing over 72 holes of stroke play in a men’s individual event (July 29-August 1, 2021) and a women’s individual event (August 4-7, 2021).
Athletes earn their spots on their respective Olympic Golf Team based on their standing in the respective men’s and women’s Olympic golf rankings. The final day for qualifying is June 21, 2021 for the men’s teams and June 28, 2021, for the women’s teams.
