Golf was a Mega Winner at Tokyo Olympics 2020


Recommended Posts

Both the Men’s and Ladies Olympic golf tournaments went down to the wire with many countries in medal positions to the last holes.

 

However, it was the massive coverage each round received globally on TV that put golf up there with all the other sports.

 

I thing one quote sums it all up….if you went out into the street and asked people if they have ever heard of the Masters or The Open, you would get a blank star, but golf at the Olympics they followed.

 

But during the Olympics people support their country, and a good example is Aditi Ashok the young Indian golfer who was at the top of the leader board on all four days and narrowly missed out on a Bronze medal.

Ranked 154 on the Rolex World rankings she plays regularly on the LPGA Tour but now because of the Olympics most of India now knows who Aditi is.

 

She received thousands of messages even from the President and Prime Minister of her country.

Perhaps she is disappointed to finish 4th, but she has inspired many young Indian girls to take up the sport.

 

Let's hope Singapore will be able to encourage more youngsters to take up the sport now.
