The driving forces in the women’s golf game are teeing off for the final round, but who are the medal favourites? Here’s everything you need to know about the last day of the golf competition at Tokyo 2020 on 7 Aug 2021.

What’s happening?

The Tokyo 2020 women’s gold title is decided today as the leading players in the tournament take to the course at the Kasumigaseki Country Club once more. The first players in round four of the women's individual stroke play tee off at 6.30am (local time).

Who should I expect to see?

Fresh from back-to-back victories on the LPGA Tour and her first major title, world No. 1 Nelly Korda of the United States of America is perfectly placed to win the gold medal. Korda shot 69 to move to 15 under overall after the third round with a three-shot lead over India's Aditi Ashok.

New Zealand’s Lydia Ko is playing some of her best golf and is looking to improve on the silver medal she won in Rio five years ago. She is in a four-way tie with Japan’s INAMI Mone, Hanna Green (Australia) and Emily Kristine Pedersen (Denmark).
