List of Olympic Golf Medalists

By Ryan Watson

The Olympics are considered the pinnacle of many individual and team sports. However, despite golf's long history, it has only featured in three different Olympic games. The Men's and Women's Individual Olympic golf title was contested in both the 1900 Paris games, the 1904 St. Louis games, and the 2016 Rio de Janeiro games. It is scheduled to return in the 2020 Tokyo games. A unique team event was also held at the 1904 St. Louis games.
