The wait is almost over. The Olympic Games starts today in Rio de Janeiro, with the Olympic Men's Golf Tournament teeing off on Thursday and the Women's a week later.
Since the Open Championship, which featured Jordan Spieth's high-profile withdrawal, Rory McIlroy's scathing put-down and Rickie Fowler confirming he was 'all-in', it's all been quiet on the Olympic front - and that's not a bad thing.
And now, as the athletes begin to touch down in Rio de Janeiro, there is a real sense of excitement among them as they prepare to represent their countries in golf's return to the Olympic scene for the first time in more than a century.
Don't believe us? Just check out the social media posts of Rickie Fowler, Justin Rose & co below.
