The 36-year-old Spanish hopeful also said playing at the games will be a ‘dream come true’.

“Ever since I was young, I’ve loved watching the Olympic Games, but I never imagined I would one day be a part of it, he said.

“Especially because golf has not been included in over 100 years. But now it’s back and just being there will be a dream come true.”

The PGA and European Tour player hopes the sport’s return to the games will help it grow around the world.

“This will be a rare but significant opportunity to showcase our sport and show how enjoyable and exciting it is.

“It’s truly a great moment to share and grow the game.”
