Historic Olympic hole-in-one for Canada’s Tony Gil at Nanjing

Historic Olympic hole-in-one for Canada’s Tony Gil at Nanjing

By Asif Hossain

Golf is back at the Olympics and a Canadian has made history.

With the sport returning to the Olympics for the first time since St. Louis 1904, it is a big hit at the Youth Games in Nanjing where Vaughan, Ontario’s Tony Gil hit a hole-in-one on Tuesday.

Gil became the first golfer to achieve the feat in Olympic history. His dream shot in Nanjing came on the par-three third hole.

Incidentally, Canada presently holds the men’s individual Olympic golf title as George Lyon won gold in 1904.
