Justin Rose shot a hole in one during his first round at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
Golf returned back to the Olympic programme after a 112-year absence.
The Rio de Janeiro Olympic Golf Course was built entirely with private funding.
On the 189 yard par3 fourth hole Rose used a 7-iron to hole his first shot.
“It’s one of the icing on the cake moments. When you’re the first to do anything no one can ever take that away from you. That was definitely a cool moment.” - Justin Rose
