Conners, Taylor to represent Canada at 2024 Summer Olympics

Published

Nick Taylor and Corey Conners will represent Canada in men's golf at the 2024 Paris Olympics later this summer.

Conners needed to finish 11th or better at this weekend's U.S. Open to claim his spot on the Olympic team. He shot an even-par final round Sunday at Pinehurst, putting himself at even for the week in a tie for ninth, finishing six shots behind winner Bryson DeChambeau.

Headed into the week, Taylor and Adam Hadwin were ranked 32nd and 35th, respectively, in Official World Golf Rankings, with the two highest-ranked Canadian players following the U.S. Open qualifying for Paris. Taylor and Hadwin each missed the cut and Conners, who came into the week 46th, bumped his ranking up enough to get inside Hadwin's.

Taylor Pendrith, who came into the week 65th in the world, finished the week in a tie for 16th at 3-over. He needed to finish third or better this weekend to pass Hadwin. 

Conners, Pendrith and Adam Svensson were the three Canadian players to make the cut this weekend at Pinehurst. Svensson finished 12-over for the week in a tie for 56th.

Conners and Mackenzie Hughes represented Canada at the summer Olympics in Tokyo in 2021. Conners finished 13th in individual stroke play while Hughes placed 50th with American Xander Schauffele winning gold.

On the women's side, Brooke Henderson will once again represent Canada and is likely to be joined by Alena Sharp. Henderson and Sharp wore the red and white in Tokyo but did not finish near the podium.
