So to have finally been finalised there on Sunday and be in is fantastic. I think Ive got a pretty good chance, Ive been playing well this year and Ive had some good finishes. Charley Hull, who finished tied-second at the ANA Inspiration, is the youngest member of the team at just 20 years old All the top women are going so its going to be tough competition but if you can get your putter hot you never know.The return of golf as an Olympic sport has been marred with controversy as all four of the top male golfers in the world pulled out due to concerns over the Zika virus, but for Matthew and the rest of the most successful females in the game, that wasnt an issue. Justin Rose says it is disappointing to see many of the worlds top golfers pull out of the Rio Olympics Im older, Ive had my family so I didnt think the zika was a huge problem for me, she said. You know obviously its everyones personal opinion, I think youve got to respect the people who are going.Rory McIlroy cited Zika as the reason for his withdrawal from the games and drew both criticism and accusations of letting the game down from the Ladies European Tour chief executive Ivan Khodabakhsh. While McIlroy admitted he may not even watch the Olympic golf tournaments, 46-year-old Matthew is hopeful that golfs return to the Olympics for the first time since 1904 will help to grow the game in countries that dont already have high numbers of participation. Jordan Spieth and Jason Day are two of the worlds best golfers to have withdrawn from the Olympics She said: Its going to be a great week and there are going to be two gold medal winners. For countries like us where golfs already played it wont make a huge difference but for other countries I think it will make a difference.A sport being in the Olympics gets more government funding and different things so hopefully it will grow the game in parts of the world where its not really played yet.
