Scott keeps climbing up Olympic rankings with win


Adam Scott

Adam Scott has made it clear with his mouth that playing in the Olympics is not a priority for him this year, but his game doesn't seem to have gotten the memo.

With his win at the Honda Classic on Sunday (his first PGA Tour victory since 2014), the Aussie moved inside the top 10 of the Olympic rankings and now has a stranglehold on the second spot for Australia, behind only Jason Day.

Sergio Garcia, who finished in second at the Honda, also moved up two spots to No. 11, and remains the lead man for Spain.

Olympic qualification will conclude after The Open Championship in July, with each country afforded a maximum of two representatives (up to four if all are ranked inside the OWGR top 15). Here is a look at the 60 golfers who would qualify for Rio if things ended today:
