Golf

Qualification process:

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.

 The IGF has guaranteed that at least one golfer from the host nation and each geographical region (Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, and Oceania) will qualify.

 

India Watch:

Anirban Lahiri qualified for his second successive Olympic Games by grabbing the last available spot in the final Tokyo Games Rankings for men.

Aditi Ashok also received the ticket for her second successive Olympics after she finished 45th on the qualifying list to make the cut.

Udayan Mane booked himself a maiden Olympic berth, becoming the second Indian male golfer after Anirban Lahiri. The 30-year-old Mane, currently the second-highest ranked Indian in the world at 356, made the cut based on the reallocation list after Argentina's Emiliano Grillo announced his withdrawal.
