Olympics: First look at team golf bags



It’s now less than two weeks until the Olympics opening ceremony and less than three weeks until the men’s Olympic golf event gets underway on August 11 – with the women’s event starting on August 17.

Slowly, we’re starting to see pieces of kit teased online. Well, when we say pieces of kit – we mean bags.

We’ve went through the Instagram and Twitter accounts of the athletes involved to see what we could find. The best bag? Well, it’s definitely Sweden, isn’t it?

Bernd Wiesberger – Austria

This should be fun! It is always was an honour for me to represent Austria – even more so at #Rio2016 @olympic_team_austria @olympics #TeamAustria
