Golf Canada and Hudson’s Bay Company have unveiled the uniform that Team Canada golfers will wear when golf returns to the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
The scripting will feature the Canadian Olympic Team mark along with the red Maple Leaf that Canadian athletes have worn in international competition.
The release of the clothing that will be worn by Canada’s four golfers — two men and two women— in Rio is specifically logoed to comply with regulations set out by the International Olympic Committee and International Golf Federation.
A field of 120 golfers — 60 men and 60 women — will be selected for the Olympic golf competition based on the World Golf Rankings as of July 11.
The golf program for the 2016 Olympic Games gets underway with the men’s competition running Aug. 11-14, followed by the women’s competition Aug. 17-20.
