I’m not sure how I feel about the olympics. I’ve never even really cared about the olympics before golf. I think golf is the perfect sport for the olympics though, given its ever-increasing global appeal and accessibility. However, two issues stand out to me:
1) most players don’t care. It’s hard to care if the do not hold the medals in esteem. I get it—the field isn’t the most competitive, it’s not major, no money, etc.
2) Covid is throwing a wrench into everything. Major players are pulling out, stringent protocols, etc. It’s going to be even harder to get up for this—as fans or professionals.
