Duck Golfer on Olympic Team, June 19

UO release – EUGENE, Ore. – In continuation of what has been an incredible run for Oregon men’s golf alum Wyndham Clark, the former Duck was one of four men’s golfers selected to represent Team USA at the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris by the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee (USOPC) on Tuesday. Selection to the team is determined by the World Golf Ranking system in which Clark is ranked fifth overall and third among Americans. Clark will join Scottie Scheffler (No. 1 WGR), Xander Schauffele (No. 3) and Collin Morikawa (No. 7) in representing the Stars and Stripes in the 33rd edition of the Games. Clark, who won the 2023 U.S. Open and finished third in the 2023 PGA Tour final standings, has resumed his impressive performances in 2024 by winning the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am in February and logging back-to-back runner-up finishes at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players Championship in March. Clark is the first UO men’s golf alum to be named to an Olympic team. The former Duck and his teammates seek to uphold a tradition of excellence among U.S. golfers as Americans have captured 13 Olympic golf medals while no other nation has earned more than three. Men’s golf at the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris begins on August 1 and will run through August 4. All competition will be held at Le Golf National, located in the city of Guyancourt, which is southwest of Paris.
