Four golf women heading for Rio Olympics

Golf will be featured at the Olympics Rio 2016. Both men and women will be vying for a position on their respective country’s team. In the weeks leading up to the Olympics in September, it is possible for a player to win 3 championships, which would assure that player of a spot on the Women’s Team.

Stacy Lewis will compete in the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship, the Cambia Portland Classic, the U.S. Women’s Open, the Marathon Classic, the UL International Crown and the Ricoh Women’s British Open before heading to the Olympics. At the present time, she is the top ranked American woman in the world.

Lydia Ko from New Zealand started 2016 with a bang winning the ISPS Hanada New Zealand Women’s Open for the third time. She was leading Hye Jin Choi, Felicity Johnson and Nanna Madsen. However, the game was called due to an earthquake at the beginning of the final round. Winning the ANA Inspiration Competition in April, 2016 assured her first place standing in world competition and she became the youngest woman ever to win a double major.

Other players hoping to compete in the Olympics Rio are Annika Sorenstam from Sweden, Lorena Ochoa from Mexico, Yani Tseng from Taiwan, Jiya Shin and Inbee Park from South Korea, Ai Miyazato from Japan and Cristie Kerr from the United States.
