RIO DE JANEIRO -- Justin Rose made the first hole-in-one in modern Olympic golf history Thursday, and he has his caddie to thank for it.I was going to hit 8-iron and [my caddie] told me 7-iron, and I went with him for a change, said Rose, referring to his caddie, Mark Fooch Fulcher. Fooch can have that one.The eagle on the 189-yard hole put the Team Great Britain member at 3 under early in his round. He finished at 4 under and is tied for fourth as he trails Australian?Marcus Fraser, who shot an 8-under 63.Definitely one of those icing-on-the-cake moments, Rose said. When youre the first to do anything, no one can ever take that away from you, whatever it is. That was definitely a cool moment.Rose, the 2013 U.S. Open champion who is ranked 12th in the world, couldnt see the ball go in for his ace.It was one of those ... almost like an infinity edge where the pin wasnt where the cup sets and where the back edge falls off the green, Rose said. So it was either in or it was off the back edge. And the way reaction was from the few people up around the green, [I] figured that it went in and not over the back.Playing alongside American Rickie Fowler and Venezuelas Jhonattan Vegas, Rose played holes 3, 4 and 5 in 4 under, including the ace at No. 4.If you look at the leaderboard, loads are in contention, said Rose, as 33 of the 60 players in the field finished at even par or better. I always knew it was going to be the kind of golf course that was going to have a big spread, because its not an easy golf course, but there are a lot of opportunities, if that makes sense. ... Theres a lot of easy holes and a lot of really tough holes, so its always going to spread out the field.... Obviously you see some of the other sports, and you realize that you cant win a gold medal on the first day. You have swimming heats and elimination rounds, and its all about keeping pace and keeping it in until the time comes.Team Great Britain teammate Danny Willett shot an even-par 71 and is tied for 27th after the opening 18 holes. The reigning Masters champion bogeyed two of his final five holes to end his opening round.

My Dad has been telling me about the great racehorse Arkle. Did he win all his races? asked Simon HarringtonArkle didnt quite win every race he entered, but the famous horse ended up with 27 wins out of 35, a pretty good record for a steeplechaser, especially one who received tough handicaps later in his career.Arkle was foaled in April 1957, and lost his first two outings -- flat races under National Hunt rules -- in Ireland late in 1961, before finally making the winners enclosure in his third race, the Bective Novice Hurdle at Navan in January 1962. Five more runs followed in Ireland -- bringing three wins, a fourth and an unplaced -- before Arkles Cheltenham debut, in the Honeybourne Chase in Nov.1962: starting as favourite, he won by 20 lengths. After another win in Ireland he was back at Cheltenham in Mar. 1963 for the festival, and romped home in the Broadway Chase -- again by 20 lengths.There were four more races in Ireland in 1963: Arkle started as odds-on favourite in all of them, and won all four. But there was a setback at Newbury in the Hennessy Gold Cup in November, when Arkle slipped at the 19th fence and ended up third, behind Mill House and Happy Spring. Mill House -- The Big Horse -- loomed large again in 1964 when, after three more wins in Ireland, Arkle started the Cheltenham Gold Cup for the first time. There were only four entrants, and Arkle beat Mill House by five lengths.At Gowran Park in Oct. 1964 Arkle started at 5-1 on -- and won again, before returning to Newbury and beating Mill House in the Hennessy. A week later he went to CCheltenham for the Massey-Ferguson Gold Cup, and finished a close third behind Flying Wild and Buonanotte.ddddddddddddHe was soon back to winning ways, finishing first in a handicap at Leopardstown in Feb. 1965, and a fortnight later trounced Mill House by 20 lengths in the Cheltenham Gold Cup. The following month Arkle won the Whitbread Gold Cup at Sandown; later in the year, also at Sandown, he won the Gallaher Gold Cup by 20 lengths -- a warm-up for the Hennessy Gold Cup, three weeks later at Newbury, which he start at 6-1 on and won by 15 lengths. A month later Arkle tackled the King George VI Chase at Kempton Park for the first time: heavily handicapped, he still started at 7-1 on and beat Dormant by a distance.After a close-run win at Leopardstown in Feb. 1966, Arkle returned to Cheltenham and crushed Dormant by 30 lengths to complete a Gold Cup hat-trick. That November, giving away 35 pounds to Stalbridge Colonist in the Hennessy at Newbury, Arkle was pipped by half a length.An easy victory followed at Ascot, and then Arkle lined up for his 35th race, the King George at Kempton Park. Starting at 9-2 on, Arkle led most of the way, but lost out by a length to Dormant in the end. He was very lame after the race, and a broken bone was discovered: despite treatment, it proved to be the end of his stellar career.The only horse since Arkle to complete a hat-trick of Cheltenham Gold Cup victories is Best Mate, from 2002 to 2004.
