At the Toronto golf show this year, I was surprised to see the Olympic Golfing Trophy in all its glory! It was very impressive and it was setup beside the RBC Canadian Open Trophy. These displays were both ‘no-touch’ displays, but pictures were more than acceptable. I enjoy looking at most things historical and seeing both of these trophies was a very special treat.
Golf is going to reappear in the Olympics after 100 years. It is an exciting time for all golfers who (after much debate with those who do not think that golf is a “real sport”) never believed that golf should never have been dropped in the first place. Seeing this trophy was very exciting. I really enjoy the Olympics and I am interested to see how golf fairs this year in Rio de Janeiro.
Regardless of your view, I think the Olympics are better for including golf! I am interested to watch some of the world’s best players vie for an Olympic golf medal. More importantly, it will be fantastic to watch the Canadian flag raise over the podium as repeat Olympic golf gold medalists!
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
