It's a one-stroke (3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

ace

Here is my best explanation:

This clue is a double definition.

'it's a one' is the first definition.

('ace' can be a synonym of 'one')

'stroke' is the second definition.

(ace is a kind of stroke)

(Other definitions for ace that I've seen before include "Playing card - expert", "Person who excels, a top card", "Playing card with single spot", "Single unit on playing cards", "One in a suit", "Tennis serve that the opponent can't reach", "One or 11 in cards", "Hole in one (golf)", "Good; service; card" and "One; expert".)
