A Closer Look at Team USA Women’s Golf Team for the Paris Olympics 2024

USA GOLF has announced the three women who will represent the United States at the Olympic Games Paris 2024, scheduled for August 7-10 at Le Golf National.

Leading the team is World No. 1 Nelly Korda, who won the gold medal at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. Joining her are No. 2 Lilia Vu and No. 9 Rose Zhang, both making their Olympic debuts.

This marks the third time since 1904 that golf will feature in the Olympics, returning in 2016. The competition will have 60 players in a 72-hole stroke-play format at Le Golf National.

The athletes qualified for Team USA based on their standings in the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings at the end of the Olympic qualification period, following the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship.

“With Korda, Vu, and Zhang on the team, USA GOLF has a highly talented group representing the United States this summer,” said USA GOLF Executive Director Andy Levinson. “These three women have eight LPGA Tour victories this season and are poised to reach the podium in Paris.”
