Here’s The 60 Players In The Olympic Golf Field But Xander Not Excited About Trip

There are some big names in the field for the delayed 2020 Olympics in Japan but really not many are getting excited about it.  Xander Schauffele for instance is 4th on the qualification list but he gave the distinct impression he just didn't want to go when asked about it at Torrey Pines.

“I haven't really made a decision yet. It's something I was going to decide tonight or tomorrow morning,” he said. “Logistics are tricky. There's no opening ceremony, no experience of Japan. You're kind of locked down in your hotel. You can't go and see other venues or events. In terms of an actual Olympics, obviously, you're playing for some hardware, some gold medals and what not, but the overall experience, which I hear is really cool, isn't going to be there in Japan this year.”
That's right. You did read an Olympic Gold Medal being referred to as hardware.
On a brighter note Rory Sabbatini IS going. Representing Slovakia.
