Column: Olympic golf a bigger stage, priority for women
The near-perfect attendance for female golfers in the Olympics make it perfectly clear how much more the Games mean to them. The men are at least making some progress. When golf returned to the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, the top four men in the world stayed home. There still are a dozen or so defectors for Tokyo. But five of the top six men are playing. AP Golf Writer Doug Ferguson says the difference is the tour schedule and the stakes. As long as the FedEx Cup and its $15 million prize are right behind the Olympics, players will skip the Games.
