Rio Olympics Golf: Leaderboard, TV Times, Tee Times, Preview Video

Golf Olympics Golf Bag

GOLF is back in the Olympics for the first time since 1904 with the men’s event teeing off on Thursday evening (AEST) and the women from Wednesday the 17th.

Though many of the world’s top golfers have decided for various reasons to forego the event, it should still hold great interest for golf fans.

Australia is represented by Scott Hend, Marcus Fraser, Minjee Lee and Su Oh with Ian Baker-Finch as team captain.

We looked it up and the defending champion gold medallist is actually a Canadian called George Lyon, who won the event against a bunch of Americans in St Louis in 1904. We’re pretty sure George won’t be around to defend his title but the Canadians do have Graham DaLaet and David Hearn.

Whilst many have declined to attend, including Australia’s Jason Day and Adam Scott, there is a decent field that includes recent British Open winner Henrik Stenson, US Masters champion Danny Willett and the likes of Bubba Watson, Rickie Fowler, Matt Kuchar, Sergio Garcia, Justin Rose and Patrick Reed.
