Sixteen-year-old Tony Gil of Canada made history on Tuesday when he became the first person to hit a hole-in-one in Olympic golfing competition.

Gil, whose home course is the Eagle's Nest Golf Club in Vaughn, Ontario, aced the par three third hole at the Zhongshan International Golf Club course in Nanjing with a seven iron.

Along with the ace, Gil had four birdies and three bogeys to eventually card a three-under 69 and lie tied for fifth place behind joint leaders Marcus Kinhult of Sweden and Brett Coletta of Australia, who both shot 66.
