WATCH: Emily Pederson goes bonkers (!) after wild Solheim Cup ace

Emily Pederson was understandably disappointed after the first session of the 2023 Solheim Cup in Spain. 

Rookie Pederson was paired with England's Charley Hull and they were thrashed 5&4 by Ally Ewing and Cheyenne Knight in the final match of the morning foursomes. 

Suzann Pettersen's Europe found themselves trailing 4-0 and were staring down the barrel of a monumental defeat. 

If Europe are to mount a comeback, perhaps they will point to this stunning moment where things started to change. 

Pederson carded a hole-in-one on No. 11 at Finca Cortesin. She was playing alongside Sweden's Maja Stark against Jennifer Kupcho and Allisen Corpuz. 

The duo were one down when Pederson stood over her tee shot at the par-3 measuring 178 yards. 

To a back right pin, Pederson struck a mid-iron towards the left side of the green which landed on the edge of the putting surface and span sideways. 

Her golf ball then dribbled into the hole, prompting outrageous celebrations with her teammate and caddie. 

Watch the shot below:

What an absolutely incredible moment. Congrats, Emily. 

This was actually the second hole-in-one in Solheim Cup history. Sweden's Anna Nordqvist made the maiden hole-in-one during the 2013 contest in Colorado. 

At the time, Europe had a 5-3 advantage but in the afternoon session Team USA fought back. 

Nordqvist, playing alongside Caroline Hedwall, were one down with five holes to go when she made a clutch birdie on No. 16 before the hole-in-one at 17 to complete the 2&1 victory.
