Golf May Be a Part of Olympics in 2008


Golf has once again been proposed for the Olympics, this time in 2008. The World Amateur Golf Council has lodged the request with the International Olympic Committee.
It is believed the IOC's desire to see Tiger Woods participate ensures the success of the application. Woods was originally cool to the idea, but encouragement from his sponsor, Nike, may have softened his stance.
It has been more than 100 years since Canada's George Lyon won the last gold medal for golf in 1904. Participants would play a 72-hole stroke-play competition with individual and team medals.
The venue for the 2008 Olympics will be announced with Paris, Toronto, Beijing, Istanbul and Osaka vying.
