In less than a decade’s time, an Olympic gold medal has arguably become as much of a coveted prize in men’s golf as a green jacket or a Claret Jug.

The third men’s golf tournament of the modern Olympic era is set for Aug. 1-4 at Le Golf National outside Paris, and 60 players from 32 countries will compete for medals.

The United States has the most players in the field with four—world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler, Tokyo Olympic gold medalist Xander Schauffele, 2023 U.S. Open champion Wyndham Clark and two-time major champion Collin Morikawa—thanks to having four inside the top 15 of the Official World Golf Ranking. Every other nation has one or two players. 

Ten of the world's top 15 will be playing in the Olympics.

In addition to Schauffele, C.T. Pan of Chinese Taipei (bronze) returns from the Tokyo medal stand. None of the medalists from the 2016 Rio Olympics (Justin Rose, Henrik Stenson, Matt Kuchar) are in the field.

Le Golf National hosted the 2018 Ryder Cup and five players from those matches, all from Team Europe, will be in the Olympic tournament: Tommy Fleetwood (Great Britain), Rory McIlroy (Ireland), Alex Noren (Sweden), Thorbjorn Olesen (Denmark) and Jon Rahm (Spain).  

Here’s the full field for the 2024 men’s Olympic golf tournament, alphabetical by national Olympic committees:
