How the golf competition works

HOW GOLF WORKS AT THE OLYMPICS:

* The men's and women's competitions are both 72-hole stroke play tournaments.

* Each player will shoot four rounds of 18 holes over four consecutive days.

* The player with the lowest score in each tournament wins the gold medal, with second and third taking silver and bronze.

* If any of the top three players are tied, a three-hole play-off will determine the positions.
