All three medalists from 2016 are returning for 2021. Inbee Park (South Korea) won gold, while Lydia Ko (New Zealand) won silver, and Shanshan Feng (China) won bronze. They will try to beat the women's No. 1 golfer in the world and favorite to capture gold, USA's Nelly Korda. She's joined by solid trio of USA teammates in her sister Jessica Korda, Danielle Kang and two-time Olympian Lexi Thompson.
FanDuel Sportsbook is favoring USA's Nelly Korda to win the women golf gold medal at +700 odds. A strong contingent on the South Korean team are top challengers: Jin Young Ko, Inbee Park, Sei Young Kim, and Hyo-Joo Kim.
