  • Ryan Fox didn’t have to look far for sporting icons to emulate when he was growing up in New Zealand. Across the dinner table at night.
  • Ludvig Åberg is the rare kind of golfer where, for as much hype was heaped on him before he even turned professional, he has very much lived up to all of it. Åberg, from Sweden, has already ascended into the top 10 in the Official World Golf Ranking on the back of his maiden DP World Tour title last September at the Omega European Masters and first PGA TOUR trophy at The RSM Classic in November.
  • One of the main objectives of the partnership between the International Testing Agency and the International Golf Federation aims to strengthen doping prevention for IGF athletes and support personnel through the creation and realisation of educational materials by IGF and ITA experts in accordance with the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) International Standard for Education. The IGF Anti-Doping Handbook Olympic Games Paris 2024 for Athletes and Athlete Support Personnel has been designed by the International Testing Agency (ITA), in collaboration with the International Golf Federation (IGF), to prepare athletes and athlete support personnel (ASP) to compete clean at the Olympic Games Paris 2024. 
  • Growing up in Sweden, Annika Sorenstam remembers being a big fan of the Winter Olympics – particularly dare-devil sports like luge, skeleton and ski jumping. “It was just something I’m just not used to seeing,” Sorenstam said.
  • With only two months down in 2024, plenty of golf’s best have just barely gotten their seasons started. But Patty Tavatanakit is already off to the races.
  • Over the past month, several players across the men’s and women’s professional golf landscape have made emphatic moves within the top 60 of the Olympic Golf Ranking (OGR). Performances were highlighted by a trio of champions on the PGA Tour that led to direct climbs in the OGR.
  • It was a wild finish to the men’s Olympic competition in Tokyo three years ago, but in the end American Xander Schauffele captured the gold. Despite a never-before-seen kind of Olympic games impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, Schauffele – mask and all – stepped up to the podium to listen to the American national anthem, gold around his neck.
  • Kevin Yu and C.T. Pan won a gold medal together at the Asian Games a decade ago, and Yu says it would be an opportunity of a lifetime to try to win another medal this summer at the Olympics for Chinese Taipei – with his friend alongside.
  • With the 2024 PGA TOUR, LPGA Tour and DP World Tour seasons kicking off this month, the final leg of the four-year Olympic Golf cycle is underway as players jostle for an opportunity to represent their nations at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. While the year is young, several players in each of the women’s and men’s Olympic Golf Ranking (OGR) have taken advantage of the opening month of the year to make significant moves inside the top 60 of the OGR (the threshold needed to qualify for Paris 2024).
  • Lydia Ko has the opportunity this summer in Paris to do something no one else can do – complete an Olympic medal collection if she were to win gold. Ko, who won for the 20th time on the LPGA Tour Sunday at the Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions, will head to Le Golf National after winning a silver medal in Rio and the bronze in Tokyo.
  • As the calendar turned into 2024, it’s official – we’re in an Olympic year. The LPGA Tour kicks off its 2024 campaign at the Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions in Orlando, Florida the week-of Jan. 15, while the PGA Tour had its first event of the year – The Sentry – wrap up on Jan. 7.
  • A four-year cycle of golf in the Olympics draws parallels to a four-day, 72-hole golf tournament in many ways. Where a third round would often be referenced as “Moving Day” in the golf world, a year prior to the Olympics could often be thought of as “Moving Year” for athletes looking to jockey for position entering the final stretch.
