Justin Rose was the first one to make a hole-in-one after golf’s 112 year hiatus from the Olympics, but that’s because he went first. Lydia Ko, the young LPGA superstar, made her own ace today on the third day of the Olympics for the women.

This ace put her into contention for the podium after having a rough start to the competition. This time around “moving day” for the ladies is on a Friday, not a Saturday, since they started on Wednesday.
She sure did move.

She’s currently tied for second place with Stacy Lewis and Brooke Henderson. Inbee Park is on top of the leaderboard, looking at gold, with two strokes ahead of the game.

Looks like everyone wants to see who brings it home with one day left to go!
