Which Indian golfers are in contention to qualify for Paris Olympics 2024?


  • India can send four golfers to the Paris Olympics 2024, with qualification based on Official World Golf Rankings.
  • Top Indian golfers in contention for qualification include Shubhankar Sharma, Gaganjeet Bhullar, Aditi Ashok, and Diksha Dagar.

India has the opportunity to send four golfers to the Paris Olympics 2024, with the qualification process heavily reliant on the Official World Golf Rankings (OWGR). The top 15 players from the OWGR will automatically qualify, with a limit of four athletes per country. Additionally, countries can have two additional golfers qualify through the Olympic Golf Rankings (OGR), provided they are not already represented in the top 15. The decision to participate ultimately lies with the National Olympic Committees (NOCs).

Several Indian golfers are currently in contention to qualify for the Paris Olympics 2024:

Shubhankar Sharma

Shubhankar Sharma, with a World Ranking of 46 and IGF Ranking of 188, has had a successful professional career with eight wins. He is now on track to secure his spot in Paris 2024.

Gaganjeet Bhullar

Gaganjeet Bhullar, ranked 53 in the world and 248 in the IGF Ranking, has 24 professional wins under his belt and is aiming for a spot in the Paris Olympics.

Aditi Ashok

Aditi Ashok, with a World Ranking of 25 and IGF Ranking of 40, has won seven professional tournaments and represented India in previous Olympics. She is a strong contender for Paris 2024.

Diksha Dagar

Diksha Dagar, ranked 40 in the world and 144 in the IGF Ranking, has three professional victories and made history as the first Indian athlete to win two Deaflympic medals. Her chances for the Paris Olympics are promising.

While some players like Anirban Lahiri are facing challenges due to their current OWGR rankings, these Indian golfers are making strides towards qualifying for the prestigious Paris Olympics. Their performances in upcoming events will play a crucial role in determining their eligibility to represent India on the global stage.
