WATCH: Lydia Ko makes a hole-in-one 2016 women’s Olympic golf


SHARE THIS STORY



Lydia Ko is having an incredible third round in the 2016 women's Olympic golf tournament, thanks in part to the second hole-in-one of the day on the eighth hole.

Ko was playing the 140-yard hole on Friday at 3 under par through seven holes of her round. Then she stepped to the tee and hit a perfect shot that landed just short of the hole location, bounced three times and rolled in for an ace.



The eagle 1 moved Ko to 5 under par for the round through eight holes.

It's the second hole-in-one on Friday at the eighth, following China's Xiyu Lin earlier in the round. This is the third hole-in-one on this hole in Olympic competition, as South Africa's Jaco Van Zyl made the first ace on the hole in the men's Olympic tournament.
