The International Olympic Committee voted today to add both golf and rugby for the 2016 and 2020 games. The New York Times reports that golf had major supporters in Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus, and Michelle Wie, while the entire country of New Zealand was rooting for rugby. Baseball, softball, squash, karate, and roller sports were once again left in the dust.

Tell us what you think of the IOC's decision below.
