Here’s some more on the Olympic golf debate we’ve discussed a few times before.
It’s taken from the article in Adelaide’s The Advertiser newspaper and this time, we hear from Geoff Ogilvy and Adam Scott.
Personally, I’m glad to hear what they have to say, particularly the tennis bit.
Geoff Ogilvy: “I see the Olympics as swimming, track and field, weightlifting sports where the Olympics is the pinnacle. For us, the pinnacle is four times a year, in the majors. It’s the way it’s always been.”
Scott, meanwhile, said Olympic golf would be like Olympic tennis an afterthought that receives only minor attention.
“I can’t tell you who won tennis at the last Olympics,” said Scott, who was a very good tennis player before focusing on golf.
“I don’t think there’s any place for golf in the Olympics. I didn’t grow up looking to win an Olympic medal. I grew up trying to win a green jacket.”
