Nicklaus and Sorenstam Recruited to Olympic Drive

Talk about getting the big guns out! The International Golf Federation has named Jack Nicklaus and Annika Sorenstam as Global Ambassadors in support of the bid to get golf into the 2016 Olympics.

No finer man than Nicklaus to have in your corner; a legendary player on the course and a legendary gentleman and ambassador for the game off it. Sorenstam's not too shabby either and she does have some time on her hands now that she has just retired from her illustrious career!

This should really help the cause to be one of the two new sports introduced at the 2016 games. The winners will be announced in Copenhagen in October, 2009 and we here at Golf Predictor are rooting for Jack and Annika to succeed (they usually do!).
