FN Pick: Teeing Off for Rio
Dustin Johnson

But that will change for the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games, when golf returns to the event for the first time in more than a century. To celebrate its comeback, last Monday Olympic sponsor Adidas pulled off a publicity stunt of sorts. Company-endorsed athletes, such as Dustin Johnson, drove golf balls onto a makeshift green floating on the Thames River at Tower Bridge.
