First Career Ace Puts Ko In Medal Position

The Olympic Golf Competition has transformed into a golf version of darts. Last week, we saw Justin Rose claim the first ace in Olympic golf history and followed that up by winning the gold medal. On Friday in Rio, women’s World No. 1 Lydia Ko found the bottom of the cup in one for — amazingly — her first career hole-in-one.

The ace, en route to a round of 65, put Ko in second place through three rounds, two shots behind Inbee Park. American Gerina Piller would have rounded out the medal stand through three rounds. She entered Saturday’s final round also two shots back of Park.
