Sunday's final round of the Masters marked the end of a legendary run by CBS' Verne Lundquist, who called his 40th and last tournament from Augusta.

Lundquist has long been a fan favorite, with his voice calling some of the most memorable moments on the par-3, 16th hole, including a Tiger Woods chip-in that will be replayed for the rest of time. Woods and Lundquist were able to share a nice moment on Sunday, which was pretty cool to see.

Jim Nantz gave Lundquist a great sendoff after Scottie Scheffler and the final group finished the 16th hole, and gave Lundquist a chance to offer one last emotional message.

Fans loved it, and paid their own tributes to the legend.
