Golf has made just three appearances at the Games to date, with a fourth due in 2021, so winners of Olympic medals for golf are a rare breed.

After making its debut in 1900 with a men’s and women’s individual – remember at this stage the Open was still in its relative infancy and the US Open had only begun five years previous – golf was then included in the 1904 Games with men’s individual and team events before being dropped from the agenda for more than a century, returning at the Rio Olympics in 2016 with men’s and women’s individual.
