A former Masters winner and multiple LIV golf stars, as well as WD from an Olympic golf tournament.


ElPeriodiGolf, a Spanish website, has stated that several LIV Golf stars have apparently withdrew from the Olympic Golf Tournament in France, Paris, this August.


Olympic qualification has reportedly been withdrawn by LIV Golf players Brooks Koepka, Tyrrell Hatton, and Louis Oosthuizen. Former Masters champion and PGA Tour player director Adam Scott has also supposedly withdrew.


Due to LIV Golf League events continuing to be excluded from earning Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR) points, Koepka, Hatton, and Oosthuizen would have had a difficult time qualifying for their respective countries.


But, if they had done well in all of the big tournaments this season, they would have had the opportunity to enter the ring.


Marcel Siem of Germany, a player on the DP World Tour, and Thomas Pieters of Belgium, a player in LIV Golf, are two more players who received WD from Olympic consideration.

The OWGR is reflected in the Olympic Golf Ranking.


The International Golf Federation oversees both the women’s and men’s golf competitions.


Le Golf National will host the women’s golf event from August 7–10 and the men’s golf competition from August 1-4.



It’s thought that no LPGA Tour players have removed their names from consideration for Olympic qualification as of yet.


There are only sixty players allowed on the Olympic golf field.

The top 15 players in the OWGR, up to a maximum of four players per nation, are qualified for the Olympics under the present standards.


Players are eligible based on the world rankings after the top 15, with no more than two eligible players from any country where two or more players are currently in the top 15.


Xander Schauffele, Patrick Cantlay, Wyndham Clark, and Scottie Scheffler would all be on the American squad as it stands.

It’s thought that Rory McIlroy is still keen to compete in the summer Olympics.


When McIlroy of Northern Ireland decided to represent his native country rather than Great Britain in the Olympics in Tokyo in 2021, he made his debut.


If McIlroy decides to play for Ireland in Paris once more, Tommy Fleetwood and Matt Fitzpatrick will probably make the GB team, should they decide to play in the competition.
