How Team USA men's golfers did at 2021 Olympics and what they said about the experience

“It’s been a fun week,” Xander Schauffele said after his third round of the men’s competition at the Olympics.

That fun continued for all in a rousing final round of golf at Kasumigaseki Country Club, and especially for him, as he made a clutch par on the final hole to claim the gold medal.

Schauffele birdied the 18th hole in the third round to take a one-shot lead over Japan’s Hideki Matsuyama into the final round, where he built a four-shot lead after eight holes, only to see one golfer after another make a charge at him.

Slovakia’s Rory Sabbatini made the biggest charge, firing an Olympics record 61 to tie for the lead. But Schauffele birdied the 17th after driving it into a bunker and then made par at the last to clinch the gold.

Golfweek's Best 2021: Top 50 Casino Golf Courses

Shadow Creek extends its run at No. 1, but there were changes this year to Golfweek's list of best courses owned by casinos in the U.S.

Golfweek's Best 2021: Top 50 Casino Golf Courses

Welcome to Golfweek’s Best Casino Courses in the United States. This list focuses on courses owned and/or operated by casinos, with data pulled from Golfweek‘s massive database of course rankings. (Pictured atop this story is French Lick Resort’s Pete Dye Course in Indiana.)

The hundreds of members of Golfweek‘s course-ratings panel continually evaluate courses and rate them based on our 10 criteria. They also file a single, overall rating on each course. Those overall ratings on each course are averaged to produce a final rating for each that is then used to compile the Golfweek’s Best course rankings.

Each course is listed with its 2020 ranking in parenthesis, an average ranking from all the Golfweek Raters who reviewed it, its location, architect(s) and whether it is a classic courses built before 1960, or a modern courses built in or after 1960.
