The International Olympic Committee is willing to bend its rules to include golf as a medal sport at the 1996 Games in Atlanta, even though there is a movement to downsize the Olympics, a leading IOC official said.

Atlanta organizers last month announced plans to stage men's and women's golf competitions at the Augusta National Golf Club, home of the Masters. If the proposal is approved by the IOC, golf would be on the Olympic program for the first time since 1904.
