The fields for the 2016 Olympic golf tournaments have been set with the completion of the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open and the U.S. Women's Open.

How to qualify for the 2016 Olympic golf tournaments

There will be two, 60-player tournaments with fields drawn from the world rankings for men and women, respectively.

The fields are decided by first exempting the top 15 players in both the men's Official World Golf Ranking and women's Rolex Rankings. However, a country can only send as many as the first four player ranked in the top 15 to the Olympic tournament.

Unless a country has three or four players in the top 15, no more than the two highest-ranked players from a country can compete in Rio de Janeiro. That means lesser-ranked players are skipped over for entry into the Olympic field if the country's maximum allotment has been met.
