Video: Canadian teen makes first ace in Olympic history

RSS

Tony Gil of Canada made the first hole-in-one in Olympic history earlier this week in China.  

The 16-year-old, playing in the Youth Olympics Men’s Individual Stroke-Play Competition at Zhongshan International Golf Club, aced the 164-yard third hole with a 7-iron during the first round.

In 2016, golf will return to the Olympic Games for the first time in more than a century. Gil’s was the first ace in Olympic history.

“Oh really?” he said after shooting 69 in the opening round. “That’s very cool. It was actually the first hole-in-one in my career, too!” 

The 54-hole event concludes Thursday. Check out video of the ace below:
