Third round action of The Players Championship continues today, helping to bridge the gap between Selection Sunday and the start of tournament games and creating one of the finest workday sports weeks on the calendar. Viktor Hovland, who has been playing some of the best golf of his career lately, took dead aim on No. 8 and found the bottom of the cup for an ace.

Then, as if to prove that he's simply one of the most impressive athletes out there grinding, the Norwegian hoisted playing partner Kevin Streelman to the sky.

Hovland is currently six shots off the lead as he waits for everyone to finish their round, probably too far back for a victory. He'll need another ace to complete the comeback and honestly, at this point, we're not betting against him.
