The 1st hurdle that Golf and Rugby has had to go over to get into the Olympics in 2016 has been completed. The Ineternational Olympic Committee (IOC) has selected both sports for inclusion in the Olympics. They were selected out of other sports that did not make the cut such as: softball, baseball, karate, and roller sports.
I'm really excited about this development because I am an avid golfer and would love to see Tiger Woods and USA take on other countries in a world competition. I see it as being, or hope it would be like, a gigantic Ryder Cup.
EDIT: They lengthened and changed the article on me. Looks like it would just be a stroke play championship. Top 15 in world would automatically qualify (both men and women) and the PGA and LPGA would alter their schedules to accomodate the Olympics.
