Are you bothered about golf in the Olympics?

Just watched Pan get the bronze medal after a 7 man play off.
BBC Olympics commentary is just abysmal.

Hazel Irvine about Pans 3rd place: " what a great start to Pans winning streak"
Weird on several levels. Maybe she can tell the future. :rolleyes:

The other day we had someone congratulating one of the rowing teams for coming 2nd and getting silver, gushing . . . "It just doesn't get any better than that"
What! :unsure:

The only benefit of golf being in the Olympics is that there is another high profile golf tournament outside of the US. Golf really does miss out by there not being a World Championship / major championship that is played around the world.

For me, it’s the format that’s wrong. A boring stroke play event is not what the olympics need.

Give us a 4bbb or a mixed m/f team match play or some such and I think it could be interesting.

Even a stroke play with men and women playing together off different tee boxes but in the same match would give it some interest.
as it is with the same old format, it’s not really worth watching imho
