WATCH: Matt Kuchar makes ace, gives ball to kid during Dell Match Play

Aces during stroke play are one level of fun. During match play though, it's a demoralizing punch in the gut to your opponent.

That's exactly what Matt Kuchar did on the seventh hole during his match against Ross Fisher at the World Golf Championship Dell Match Play.

From 181 yards out, Kuchar's shot hit the front of the green and released toward the hole. Fisher started to walk toward the green but after he got about 15 yards from the tee box, saw the ball drop in the cup and turned to applaud his opponent. 

 

 

In true Kuchar fashion, his celebration on the tee with the fans was equally as awesome as the shot. Then, he signed the ball and gave it to a kid in the gallery just like he did when he made an ace during the final round of last year's Masters.

Kuchar led the match 2-up through 7 after the ace. He needs to win and a Yuta Ikeda loss to advance to the knockout round. An Ikeda half against Zach Johnson would push the two into a playoff.
