Ireland's top golfers won't be take part in the Olympic golf tournament in Rio next month, but the three golfers that will represent Ireland at the games have been confirmed.
Seamus Power, Padraig Harrington and Leona Maguire look set to qualify for the Olympic games' first golf tournament since 1904 - with the team captained by Paul McGinley.
Hopes had been high in the build up to the Olympic games that golf was an area where Ireland had a real shot at winning gold, given the plethora or talent in the country. But fears over the Zika virus saw former world number 1, Rory McIlroy and Irish Open champion, Shane Lowry, pull out from the tournament.
The likes of Jordan Spieth, Jason Day and Adam Scott soon followed and pulled out for similar reasons, leaving the tournament without any of the world's top 4 player competing.
Padraig Harrington and Seamus Power will qualify after finishing inside the top-60, and Leona Maguire will be Ireland's sole Olympian golfer in Rio - after rankings published this afternoon place her in the top-60.
Here's the full list of male golfers competing at the Games:
