Rio Olympics: Golf | Justin Rose makes history

Rio Olympics - Golf - Justin Rose makes history

Justin Rose made history in Rio on Thursday by making a first ever hole in one on day at the Olympics when golf made a long-awaited return to the Games.

Great Britain’s Rose made history with a magnificent tee shot at the 191-yard par-three fourth in the first round at the purpose-built Barra da Tijuca to move to three under.

While several of the leading golfers opted against entering the tournament due to concerns over the Zika virus, Englishman Rose savored a moment he will never forget.
