Who says there's no good golf to watch in December? A battle of the ages just went down on, of all places, The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Promoting his much-praised album the "20/20 Experience," Justin Timberlake took on 9-year-old Sky Sudberry, one of the stars of Netflix's new documentary "The Short Game." After a quick interview with Ellen, Sudberry pulls her driver, which she says she normally hits about 180 yards (!!), and rips a couple shots just right of the middle target. But it was Timberlake who, after three "practice shots," punched a knockdown 5-iron into the target first. He celebrated by grabbing his heart and exhaling in relief.

Timberlake may have technically won, but we don't care. It was a moral victory for Sky.
