RSS

Olympic qualification has ended, and after a late flurry of withdrawals, Bubba Watson holds the top spot.

Jordan Spieth became the latest notable player to withdraw from the Olympics, and now each of the top four players in the world will skip golf's return from a 112-year hiatus. At world No. 5, Watson is the highest ranked player in the field after the two-year qualification period ended on Sunday.

Along with Spieth, France's Victor Dubuisson and Korea's K.T. Kim also withdrew Monday per the International Golf Federation.
