FedEx Cup hopeful Xander Schauffele enjoyed a moment to remember in round three of the Tour Championship with a timely hole-in-one.

The American became the second player this week to ace the 240-yard par-three ninth at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta.

Schuaffele's tee shot bounced on the green and curved round into the hole as the ace followed a birdie at the previous hole.

Lightning on Saturday meant round three was unable to be completed on schedule, so it carried over into Sunday.

Brooks Koepka led at 14 under through 14 holes as play continued, one clear of Schauffele, Rory McIlroy and overnight leader Justin Thomas.
