Sixteen-year-old Canadian golfer Tony Gill made history Tuesday in Nanjing, China with the first hole-in-one ever at the Youth Olympic Games.

Gill, who used a seven-iron to ace the 164-yard third hole, said it was the first hole-in-one of his career.

"This is definitely a special moment for me," he said.

Gill was tied for fifth after the opening round, three shots off the lead.

Golf is making its Youth Olympics debut at these Games.
