Rio 2016: Rose makes history with hole in one


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 savoured a moment he will never forget.

Brazilian golfer Adilson da Silva hit the first Olympic tee shot since 1904 and it was Australia's Marcus Fraser who was soon setting the pace, moving to seven under with just two holes to play.

Canada's Graham DeLaet set the clubhouse lead on five under, while Germany Martin Kaymer was well placed on four under after 12.
