It’s hard to believe that the “game” is proving itself to be a real sport after 112 years of debate.  Well now that is over and we’re excited to see who will end Margaret Abbott’s 116 year reign as the Women’s Olympic Golf Champion!

McIlroy, Day and Speith, to name a few, won’t be taking part in this year’s games, which gives more opportunities for others to make a name for themselves.
