Qualification System

Covid-19 Impact

Following the postponement of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, on 29 April 2020, the IGF and the IOC announced an adjustment to the qualifying system for the Games to accommodate the new dates of competition in 2021. In light of the one-year delay, athletes accumulate Olympic Golf Rankings (OGR) points through a period ending on 21 June 2021 for the men and 28 June 2021 for the women. The field for both men and women will consist of 60 players.

Qualification Timeline

The Olympic field is restricted to 60 players for each of the men’s and women’s competitions. The IGF will utilise the official world golf rankings to create the Olympic Golf Rankings as a method of determining eligibility. The top-15 world-ranked players will be eligible for the Olympics, with a limit of four players from a given country. Beyond the top 15, players will be eligible based on the world rankings, with a maximum of two eligible players from each country that does not already have two or more players among the top-15.
