Olympic Golf mirrors Olympic Tennis

July 1st, 2016

In 1988 (Seoul), when Tennis was re-admitted as an Olympic sport for the first time since 1924, several of the world’s top-ranking players failed to turn up. Only three of the top ten in the world’s men rankings took part. By 1992 (Barcelona), however, eight of the top ten men played, including all of the top four, and in 1996 (Atlanta), where Andre Agassi won the gold medal, he later acknowledged that this was one the high points in his career.

Those of us who support the inclusion of golf in the Olympics, because of the potential impact that this will have upon growing the game worldwide, can only hope that the 2020 Games in Tokyo will attract a better top player attendance. We may not get another chance.
