Scheffler and Vu in Top Positions in Current Olympic Rankings for Men and Women

The men’s and women’s Olympic golf competitions are approaching, with only 13 and 14 weeks left to solidify the fields for the events in early August in Paris. The 60-player fields for each event are determined based on the world rankings, with countries allowed up to two representatives and up to four if they are all in the top 15. Each continent is guaranteed at least one athlete in each event.

Golf has been a part of the Olympic program for three editions now, with Justin Rose and Xander Schauffele winning gold medals for the men and Inbee Park and Nelly Korda winning for the women. Scottie Scheffler and Lilia Vu, both Americans, currently lead the world rankings for the men and women, respectively. Players like Kalle Samooja and Ursula Wikstrom from Finland are currently on the edge of qualifying for the events.

As for LIV, eight members have already qualified for the Olympic events. These players include Samooja, Jon Rahm from Spain, Adrian Meronk from Poland, and Joaquin Niemann. The race to qualify for the Olympics is heating up as the deadline approaches.
