Top 5: Rio Olympic Games highlights
Golf made a triumphant return to the Olympic Games in 2016 in Rio after last being included in 1904.
60 female golfers got the opportunity to represent their country in this prestigious event. It took a traditional format with four rounds of 18 holes to decide who will take home the gold medal.
Altogether 34 nations were represented which lead to an exciting event. This allowed the best players in the world go all out by producing fantastic golf shots and breaking records.
Here are the moments we think made the Olympics.
