Scheffler and Vu Maintain Top Spots in Men’s and Women’s Olympic Rankings

We are now 13 and 14 weeks away from finalizing the field for the men’s and women’s Olympic golf events, respectively. These competitions are scheduled to take place in early August in Paris. The 60-player fields for each event are determined by world rankings, with countries allowed up to two representatives (or up to four if they are all ranked within the top 15). Each country is guaranteed at least one athlete in both events, and in the case of France, they are likely to qualify a player for both competitions. The same rules apply to every continent.

Golf has been included in the Olympic program for the past three editions, with Justin Rose (2016) and Xander Schauffele (2020) winning gold for the men, and Inbee Park (2016) and Nelly Korda (2020) taking the gold medals for the women. The current leaders of the world rankings in golf are Scottie Scheffler and Lilia Vu from the United States. At the moment, the last players to qualify for the events are Kalle Samooja and Ursula Wikstrom from Finland.

In terms of LIV qualification, there are currently eight members who have qualified, including Samooja (340), Spain’s Jon Rahm (3), Poland’s Adrian Meronk (52), and Joaquin Niemann (84). The rankings are constantly changing as players compete in various tournaments leading up to the Olympics.
