Golf In Olympics Proposal
By Kickntrue on 2/17/09
The International Golf Federation made their proposal to the Olympic Committee with their proposal for golf being in the 2016 Olympics. They want a 72 hole format like the majors to decide the champion. I'm with Geoff Shackelford on this one,
"There's your buried lede of the week or maybe month.Couldn't say it better myself. How lame.
How about a 12 country team event? How about Match Play for all the marbles? Can you imagine an experience like the Ryder Cup, but over 8 days with 12 6-man teams? It would rule God's green earth!

guess what tomorrows my birthday!
I'd like to have seen more a country/team element, perhaps two-man teams like the World Cup. They could play one round of better-ball, one alternate shot and maybe one aggregate score. Just looking at the current rankings I can see some intriguing teams:
USA: Woods/Stricker, Mickelson/Kim, Perry/Furyk
UK: Westwood/Rose, McIlroy/Casey
That would be worth watching!
