The push for golf in the Olympics

February 07, 2009

The push to make golf an Olympic sport in 2016 has a website,, that it calls "a grass roots effort to get the greatest sport in the world a place on the world stage where it belongs - the Olympics."

It's conducting a poll, calling for a yes or no vote on golf as an Olympic sport.

For a nay point of view, we recommend this column by Golf World's Bob Verdi.
