WATCH: Awesome hole-in-one at the Olympics is the best possible start!

This is exactly what Olympic golf needed. So many of you think it’s a waste of time for four simple facts. Others, myself included, think Olympic golf can only be a positive thing. I don’t buy into this “embarrassment to the game” BS, and feel that those who withdrew will live to regret it.

I’m not a big believer in prophetic significance, but this put a smile on the faces of all us pro-Olympians. The shot came on the 191-yard fourth hole to move the Brit to three-under par.

Australian Marcus Fraser set the pace early on, carding eight birdies to move to seven under par.
