ASU, UA will duel for Tokyo Olympics medals with equal representation


It’s funny how these things work out sometimes.

Rivals Arizona and Arizona State have the same number of representatives (22 athletes and coachesapiece) going into the Tokyo Olympics, which run from July 23-Aug. 8. So let the medal-count watching begin for an unofficial early jump on the 2021-22 Territorial Cup Series.

There will be eight alums from the two schools representing six countries playing at Kasumigaseki Country Club for golf’s second Olympic appearance since an absence of more than a century (since 1904). 

The men play July 29-Aug. 1 and the women on Aug. 4-7.

Jon Rahm (Spain) and Paul Casey (Great Britain) are 17 years apart in age and from different eras at ASU but playing well enough to contend.

Rahm, 26, won his first major title at the U.S. Open then tied for third at the British Open, moving back to the No. 1 world ranking. Casey is No. 22 in the world after tying for 15th at the British Open. He also was fourth at the PGA Championship and seventh at the U.S. Open.
