Tokyo Olympics - Men's Golf Medal Winners:

Gold Medal:   Xander Schauffle - US

Silver Medal:   Rory Sabbatini - Slovakia

Bronze Medal:  C.T. Pan - Taiwan

From the PGA TOUR Daily Wrap-up, by AP:

Xander Schauffele won an Olympic gold medal he badly wanted by overcoming more pressure than he could have imagined Sunday.

Right when Schauffele appeared to lose his firm grip on the gold, the 27-year-old American responded with two clutch putts at the end for a 4-under 67 and a one-shot victory over Rory Sabbatini of Slovakia in a wild finish to the men's golf competition.  Read more

From Fox Sports:

A heartbreaking bogey on the final hole has cruelled Australian Cameron Smith’s hopes of an Olympic medal in Tokyo.

Smith had surged up the leaderboard in a blistering final round to be within touching distance of the podium only for bogey on the last to snuff out his chances.

He would finish in a tie for 10th behind Xander Schauffele who clung on in a dramatic finish.  Read more

From BBC Sport:

American Xander Schauffele clinched the Olympic men's golf gold medal on a nail-biting final day that ended with a seven-way play-off for the bronze medal.

CT Pan of Chinese Taipei finally claimed it on the fourth knockout hole, with Ireland's Rory McIlroy and Great Britain's Paul Casey eliminated earlier...

Slovakia's Rory Sabbatini closed with an Olympic record 10-under round of 61 to finish in silver at 17 under.  Read more

From Olympics.com:

Xander Schauffele of the United States has won the Olympic men's individual stroke play competition after four rounds of action saw him finish on -18. The 27-year-old Californian ended the gold medal hopes of Slovakia's Rory Sabbatini with a nerve-free final putt, with the latter ending the final round on -17.  Read more

From Golf.com:

Let me take you to the scene at No. 18 tee at about 3:25 a.m. Eastern Standard Time (4:25 p.m. local time), when seven of the world’s best golfers headed back to the course to play for the illustrious honor of solo third place. 

In wonderfully Olympic fashion, the seven pros in the bronze-medal bonanza represented seven different nationalities. One guy (Collin Morikawa) had just won his second major championship in less than a year. Another guy (Rory McIlroy) was the proud owner of twice that many. A third (Mito Pereira) was playing on the Korn Ferry Tour a few weeks ago.  And that was less than half the playoff’s competitors.  Read more
