Golf Olympic bid launched

The International Golf Federation have submitted a formal bid to include golf in the 2016 Olympic Games.

Golf is one of seven sports being considered for inclusion, along with baseball, karate, roller sports, rugby sevens, softball and squash.

The IGF is proposing 72-hole individual strokeplay for both men and women. A play-off would determine the medal winners if necessary.
