Which golf women are attending the Rio Olympics and who is staying away?

The Rio Olympics opening ceremonies of the grand competition began today. For all the controversy, this event has drawn people from around the world and not just for the games. Pollution became a major concern and many feel it has not been properly handled both in terms of air, as well as water.

For golf, some players have decided to attend the games and some are choosing to stay away. For other sports, the attendance rates were fairly low in lieu of many recent controversies, and in golf itself, men had many no-shows amongst the top ranks. This wasn’t so for the women’s golf competitive field, however. The 60 women competitors who were chosen to participate showed up in full force for the Olympics, with only two missing players from over 510 ranked in world positions. This is a huge demonstration of strength and unwavering commitment to representing and competing in a great sport on the world stage. Despite recent news of potential Zika virus risks, pollution of both the air and sea, and an intense schedule for the games themselves, the women have chosen the sport and competition over the risks. Prestige is what drives these women, pride to be golfing for their country and to see who the best golfer of the world’s talent is.
