Fifty-seven years after having organised the Olympic Games, the Japanese capital will be hosting a Summer edition for the second time, from July 23 to August 8, 2021.
The golf competition consists of a 72-hole individual stroke play for both men and women (four rounds scheduled over four (4) consecutive days). Scores are cumulative from round to round. The player with the lowest aggregate score wins.
The men’s event will take place July 29 to August 1
and the women’s event August 4 – August 7, 2021.
For all rounds, the intention is to play in groups of three, either from the first tee only or from both the first and 10th tees.
For rounds 1 and 2, pairings will be published two days before the start of each respective event. For rounds 3 and 4, groupings will be done according to cumulative score at the end of the previous round, with the leaders (lowest cumulative scores) teeing off last.
