Biography

Justin ROSE

British golfer Justin Rose made not one but two pieces of history at Rio 2016: not content with recording the first ever hole-in-one at the Games, he went on to become the sport’s first Olympic champion in 112 years.

Justin Rose took just a couple of holes to make his mark at the first Olympic golf competition since 1904, scoring a hole-in-one at the 189-yard par-3 fourth on the Barra da Tijuca course in Rio.

“When you’re the first to do anything no one can ever take that away from you,” he said in typically understated style after achieving something no other player had done in the history of the Games. “That was definitely a cool moment.”

Rose went on to card a 4-under-par 67 on the opening day, leaving him fourth on a leaderboard topped by Australia’s Marcus Fraser, who lay four shots ahead on -8. It was to prove a solid platform for victory for the British player.
