Max Homa's final round of the Wells Fargo Championship started off extremely hot as he holed-out an eagle on the first hole.

His ball went straight into the hole from 213 yards out, in the rough nonetheless, on the sunny day in Charlotte, N.C., at Quail Hollow Golf and Country Club. The shot impressed golf and sports fans all around, but one comment on the PGA Tour's Instagram post stood out from the rest.

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce was very excited for Homa and his incredible shot, so he left an encouraging comment.

"My guys livin right!!" Kelce wrote, along with two fire emojis and two dart emojis.

This was the only eagle Homa has hit all weekend, at least through the front nine of his final round. He entered Sunday's round with a total of 2-under. The leaders, currently Xander Schauffele and Rory McIlroy, share a 12-under best early on Sunday.
