The International Golf Federation has published the fields for the first Olympic golf tournaments in 112 years.

The men’s and women’s fields are 60 players each, with no more than four golfers per nation if ranked in the world top 15. Once past the top 15, a nation can have no more than two golfers.

Given those restrictions, plus golfers dropping out, the men dipped to No. 392 in the Official World Golf Ranking on July 10 to fill out the field.

The women’s field, with far fewer dropouts, dipped to No. 562.
