The 60-player field for next month’s men’s golf competition at the 2024 Summer Olympics was finalized on Monday.

The competition is scheduled for Aug. 1-4 at Le Golf National in Guyancourt, the site of the 2018 Ryder Cup and the host of the DP World Tour’s Open de France since 1991.

The 60 players earned their spots based on the official International Golf Federation world ranking list as of Monday. Each of the top 15 players in the Official World Golf Ranking were eligible, with countries limited to a maximum of four participants. The remainder of the field was determined directly from the IGF ranking list.

American Xander Schauffele will return to the Olympics to defend his gold medal from four years ago. He will be joined by fellow Americans Scottie Scheffler, Wyndham Clark and Collin Morikawa.

Patrick Cantlay rose to eighth in the world after his tie for third at the U.S. Open on Sunday, but he was narrowly edged out by seventh-ranked Morikawa. Bryson DeChambeau claimed his second U.S. Open title at Pinehurst, but he finished as the sixth-highest-ranked American, 10th in the OWGR.

Meanwhile, Canada’s Corey Conners snuck one spot ahead of countryman Adam Hadwin, moving to 37th in the OWGR following his tie for ninth at Pinehurst.
