Nelly Korda gave the fans something to cheer about during the third round of the CME Group Tour Championship.
On the 148-yard eighth hole, Korda hit a perfect shot, with her ball hitting the green about a dozen feet short of the hole and rolling straight into the cup. You can watch it here:

With the ace, Korda went from two under to four under on her round, and 12 under for the tournament. At the time of this post, she’s T-8 at the season-ending championship, five shots behind leader Nasa Hataoka.
Korda is one of the top 60 players on the CME points list. At the end of the season, those 60 athletes play in the CME Group Tour Championship in Naples, Florida. They’re playing for the largest first prize in women’s golf: $2 million. Korda has two top-3 finishes at the CME, but has not yet won the championship.
