Tom Watson against golf at Olympics
Golf legend Tom Watson believes the sport has no place in the Olympics.
While most golf players, fans and officials are celebrating the sport's looming re-entry to the Olympics at the 2016 Rio de Janiero Games after more than a century on the outer, Watson is opposed.
"I don't want to pour cold water on it, but I don't think it should be in the Olympic Games," said eight-times major champion Watson ahead of this week's Australian Open in Sydney.
"We have our most important championships (the four majors each year).
"Maybe every four years is not that much more (but) I still think of Olympics as track and field and not golf to be honest with you."
Golf has twice previously been played at the Olympics - but not since Paris in 1900 and St Louis in 1904.
