Lydia Ko is really, really excited about playing in the Olympics

September 14, 2015

A long trip to Rio in the heart of the season. A new, untested golf course. An unimaginative format. Tour pros have found plenty of reasons to gripe about the inclusion of golf into next year's Olympics.

Adam Scott, for one, called it an "exhibition" earlier this year, and said he wasn't "going to miss it" if he doesn't qualify. With the event now less than a year away, we're bound to hear similar opinions from more of the game's stars, but don't count Lydia Ko among the group of golfers grumbling about going to Brazil.
