We’re coming down the homestretch of the men’s golf competition at the Tokyo Olympics, which has been as much an endurance race as anything. Multiple weather delays, numerous lead changes and a leaderboard chock-full of various nationalities have made this a riveting tournament to follow.

Kasumigaseki Country Club outside Tokyo is the host venue of the event and is one of Japan’s most exclusive private clubs. The East Course, which is where the Olympics are being played, opened in 1929, but Tom and Logan Fazio completed renovations to the track in 2016.
