Meet the 60 qualifiers for the women’s golf competition

The qualification period for the women’s golf competition has concluded and the International Golf Federation has announced the 60 qualifiers for the 2024 Paris Olympics.

Two countries will have three representatives at Le Golf National, as Nelly Korda, Lilia Vu and Rose Zhang will compete for the United States and Jin Young Ko, Amy Yang and Hyo Joo Kim are slated to play for the Republic of Korea. Yang claimed a last-minute spot in the field after winning her first career major title at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, the final qualifying event for the women’s competition.

Over 20 athletes will make their Olympic debuts, including Swedes Maja Stark and Linn Grant, and nearly 20 players (four men, 15 women) will be teeing it up in their third straight Games, most notably two-time medalist Lydia Ko of New Zealand, Canadian Brooke Henderson and Australia’s Minjee Lee.

Other notable qualifiers are Colombian Mariajo Uribe, who has announced that the 2024 Paris Olympics will be her last event as a professional golfer, and Yuka Saso, who, after representing the Philippines at the 2020 Tokyo Games, will compete for Japan for the first time in Paris. Saso earned her second Olympic berth by winning the U.S. Women’s Open presented by Ally at Lancaster Country Club.

For the first time ever, Singapore will be represented in the Olympic golf competition with Shannon Tan’s qualification. She is the first Singaporean to ever compete in the Olympic golf competition in either the men’s or women’s competitions.
