While the format of the Olympic golf tournament is subject to change, the 60-player field will be determined from the Rolex Rankings. The top 15 players in the ranking at a date to be determined are automatically in the field. After that, another 45 players will be added, but there can be no more than two players from any one country unless they are inside the top 15.
