Olympics appearance not closed off by Scott
Adam Scott has left the door open to represent Australia at the 2020 Tokyo Games although he's unsure of golf's place at the Olympics.
The former world number one was not in favour of golf returning to the Olympic programme in 2016 and called the Rio edition a "weaker-than-most field that doesn't really pique my interest".
His stance, which came in for heavy criticism at the time from Australia's many former athletes, may have softened slightly as he prepares his tournament schedule for next year.
"It is possible, absolutely," Scott said of his participation in Toyko ahead of Thursday's Australian Open. "I haven't prioritised it... but I haven't ruled it out. We will see how the year shapes up for me."
Like many, Scott suggested Olympic golf could be improved by tinkering with the strokeplay format and making it a team event.
"I still question strongly why it is there; I don't see the need," added the former Masters champion.
"It was incredibly disappointing that it was just a 72-hole stroke (play event); I think there could have been so much done with it.
"I don't think we're getting the most out of it, for a sport that is certainly not struggling at the professional level."
