The golf event runs from July 29-Aug. 1. However, for North American viewers, the tournament starts on the evening of July 28 due to the time difference.
Here's the complete list of Olympian golfers hailing from 36 different countries:
United States 🇺🇸
Electing to skip: Dustin Johnson
Team note: The U.S. is the only team sending four golfers to Tokyo, which is the maximum number allowed if all players are inside the top 15 in the world ranking. Each golfer will be making their Olympic debut. Matt Kuchar claimed a bronze medal for the Americans in 2016 in Rio de Janeiro.
Team note: Corey Conners and Mackenzie Hughes will represent Canada for the first time after Graham DeLaet and David Hearn had the honor in 2016. Before golf returned to the Olympics for the Rio games, Canada was the defending gold medal winner after George Lyon claimed victory at the 1904 summer Olympics.
Great Britain 🇬🇧
Electing to skip: Tyrrell Hatton, Matthew Fitzpatrick, Lee Westwood
Team note: After three qualified players withdrew from consideration, Tommy Fleetwood will join Paul Casey in Great Britain's attempt to defend Justin Rose's gold medal.
Electing to skip: Sergio Garcia, Rafa Cabrera Bello
Team note: World No. 1 Jon Rahm partners with the European Tour's Adri Arnaus for a formidable duo of bombers. Fresh off his U.S. Open victory, you'd have to imagine Rahm will be favored to win the gold medal.
Team note: Given the option to represent Great Britain or Ireland, Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy will play under the Irish flag alongside reigning Open champion Shane Lowry. McIlroy elected to skip the 2016 Rio Games due to concerns with the Zika virus.
Team note: All eyes will be on Hideki Matsuyama, as the green jacket winner will compete on home soil with Rikuya Hoshino, who recently placed tied-for-26th at the U.S. Open. If Matsuyama can win the Masters and a gold medal in the same year, he'll go down as a legend in Japanese sporting history.
Electing to skip: Adam Scott
Team note: Unfortunately for the Aussies, Olympic golf is not a team event. Cameron Smith and Marc Leishman won the PGA TOUR's Zurich Classic together in May but will be competing against each other in Tokyo.
South Korea 🇰🇷
Si Woo Kim
Team note: The Olympics is a huge stage for both Sungjae Im and Si Woo Kim, as a medal of any kind will allow them to skip the otherwise mandatory two years of military service imposed by South Korea.
Kristian K Johannessen
South Africa 🇿🇦
Electing to skip: Louis Oosthuizen
Team note: Garrick Higgo will have the chance to turn more heads as he headlines the South African team following Louis Oosthuizen's decision to skip Tokyo. Higgo, 22, won the Palmetto Championship in only his second PGA TOUR start.
Team note: Young Joaquin Niemann will join forces with Mito Pereira, who recently received a promotion to the PGA TOUR with three victories on the Korn Ferry Tour.
Team note: 2016 silver medalist Henrik Stenson failed to qualify.
Electing to skip: Bernd Wiesberger
Joachim B. Hansen
Team note: Rory Sabbatini, the former South African, will finally accomplish his dream of competing in the Olympics after becoming a Slovakian citizen in 2019.
