THE GOLF FATHER: As the 2016 Rio Summer Games approached and golf was designated an Olympic sport for the first time since 1904, the man known as the father of the game in Brazil was celebrated anew. Brazil had won five World Cup soccer championships and produced international road racing and tennis champions, but golf had largely remained a niche sport in the country, reserved for wealthy businessmen and ex-patriots. But when the Reserva Marapendi Golf Course was built for the Olympics in western Rio, later to be converted into a public course in the hope that it could propel Brazilian golf toward a bright future, the exploits of Mario Gonzalez, who died in Rio at 96, were remembered and retold.
