The men's and women's 60-person fields for the 2024 Paris Olympics have been solidified.

The men's field has been set since the 2024 U.S. Open results were made official. Controversially, LIV Golf League star Bryson DeChambeau — who ranks sixth on DataGolf, based on his performance in all three majors — will not be a part of Team USA's delegation.

Instead, PGA Tour stalwarts Scottie Scheffler, Xander Schauffele, Collin Morikawa (all inarguable selections) and Wyndham Clark (ranked 27th on DataGolf) will head to Paris. Schauffele is the defending golf medalist.

Qualification criteria for men's Olympic golf is based on the Official World Golf Ranking. DeChambeau's omission shed a fresh light on the embattled OWGR, which has yet to recognize LIV results. The two-time major champion is ranked ninth, four spots below Clark. No country can take more than four top-15 players.


That said, there are seven LIV Golf League members going for gold.

LIV Golf players in Paris Olympics


Jon Rahm: Rahm (and Puig) will be making their Olympic debuts.

Rahm struggled in the first two majors of 2024 and was a late scratch for the U.S. Open due to a toe infection. He's played well on LIV, though; His Legion XIII team has two wins, including last week's shindig in Nashville.

The 2023 Masters champion ranks second in the individual points standings, though he's still looking for his first first-place finish.

David Puig: Puig has quickly established himself as a rising star in global golf. The 22-year-old was one of the few LIV Golfers to earn a spot in the U.S. Open through qualifying. He finished T55 (+11), but the made cut on top of two prior Asian Tour wins vaulted him into the Olympics field.

“Proud of myself and all the work I put in this year and last year,” said the Spaniard. “All the travel I did, I think it paid off for moments like this. I’m super-excited.”


Joaquin Niemann: Niemann is one of most promising talents to depart the PGA Tour. At LIV, the 25-year-old has banked two wins and leads the individual points standings.

He earned a spot in two majors thanks to his win at the Australian Open in December. Niemann finished T10 in 2021 in Tokyo.

Mito Peirera: Pereira was a late sub after Cristobal del Solar withdrew to focus on upcoming Korn Ferry Tour events. The 29-year-old part-took in the seven-way playoff for bronze at the Tokyo Games (C.T. Pan triumphed).


Carlos Ortiz: Ortiz, a member of Niemann's Torque GC squad, recently found the winner's circle at LIV Houston. He finished T42 in his Olympics debut.

Abraham Ancer: Ancer has fallen dramatically in the world rankings, but he's a top-20 talent. The Mexican finished T14 in the 2020 Summer Games. He has four top-10 finishes in eight LIV Golf events, headlined by a victory in Hong Kong.


Adam Meronk: Meronk finished T51 at the Tokyo Games. The 31-year-old is headed to France for his performance on the DP World Tour and other international events from 2022-23.

Olympic golf is comprised of 72 holes of individual stroke play and no cut. The men will compete from Aug. 1-4. The women will tee off on Aug. 7.

For all the fair criticism of the LIV product, the Saudi-backed circuit is at its best when it leans into its international and team components, such as in Adelaide, where Cam Smith's all-Aussie Ripper squad bested the South African-led Stinger GC in a rowdy playoff.

Le Golf National, located outside of Paris, hosted the 2018 Ryder Cup.
