No mention of Dan Blankenship? There doesn't seem to be that much written about him, but as an American in Brazil, where he has built more courses than anyone. Says he worked for Pete Dye, I have never been able to get in contact with him, but seems like he would be a fairly legit candidate for the job.

"Who deserves it" probably is Tom Fazio who in the last 20 years has designed more top 100 courses then anyone, including Jones, Nicklaus and Palmer put together. Sadly, the Jones's and Nicklaus teams are the savvy and have the connections so those are probably going to be the winners. If you want to look at the best architects, then you are ignoring Gil Hanse, Tom Doak and the team of Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw who all have declined because they don't want to deal with the politics and the dirty business of securing such a job.

Brandon, This IS the Olympic games, the most global event on the planet run by the IOC (this stands for INTERNATIONAL Olympic Committee), not the World Golf Championships that are only staged in the USA. The natural choice to design the Olympic golf course in Rio de Janeiro is Gary Player, with his worldwide portfolio of golf courses, his status as the International Ambassador of Golf and connection to Brazil where he has played for many years and won the Brazilian Open. incidentally, he shot a 59 in the final round, the first time anyone did this in a National Open. Come on Brandon…the world is a big place!

My opinion is that should try to work together for a few weeks. Have an outstanding track with a few holes from say something similiar to a Golden Ocala, but thier best like Arnolds #18 at Bay Hill, Pete Dyes #17 at TPC Sawgrass etc... have them draw it up Tom Fazio, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Nick Faldo, Pete Dye, Greg Norman, Tom Watson and Eldrige Woods.
