More about the Olympics Golf at Augusta

Golf returned to the Olympic Games in 2016 at Rio de Janeiro after a 112 year absence.

Interestingly golf almost returned to the Olympics two decades earlier.

After bringing the 1996 Olympics to Atlanta, Billy Payne, then the head of the Atlanta Games organizing committee, turned his attention to making golf an Olympic sport again.

He even got in contact with the then Augusta National chairman to agree that Augusta should be the host venue.

Unfortunately, due to various circumstances, the opportunity never eventuated.

In January 1993 Billy Payne withdrew his proposal.
