There are no iconic moments at the Masters without the iconic commentary that goes with them. So many of those shots throughout the last 40 editions of the tournament have been called by legendary sportscaster Verne Lundquist, who hit the course at Augusta National Golf Club one final time with a microphone in front of him on Sunday.

Lundquist took his perch at the 16th green for CBS this weekend for his 40th Masters as a broadcaster. Before he started describing his final round at Augusta National, Lundquist shared a touching exchange with Tiger Woods as the five-time Masters champion was closing out his round on Sunday.

It's wonderful to see a figure as renowned as Woods taking some time to pay his respects to one of golf's most recognizable voices. Woods understands what Lundquist has meant and does mean to the sport. For him to take even a brief moment away from a Sunday round at the Masters – albeit he was nowhere near contention for the title – shows how much he and the golf world respect Lundquist.

Woods and Lundquist are forever synonymous with one another thanks to their unique abilities in their respective fields. No golf fan will ever forget Woods' chip-in on the 16th hole en route to his fourth Green Jacket in 2005, partially because of Lundquist's commentary on the shot. That's likely the first thing most people think of when they see the two golf icons together.

Woods said he'll always hold that call dear to his heart.

“I've heard that call a couple of times,” Woods said with a smile, per CBS Sports. “He has an amazing ability to bring in the audience, describe a situation and narrate in a way that is poetic but also described with emotionality. He just draws the audience in…I will have that memory with Verne for the rest of my life.”

Lundquist ranked that shot as “1A” for his favorite calls at the Masters, slightly behind Jack Nicklaus' birdie putt on 17 to take sole possession of the lead during the final round at the 1986 Masters.

Sports fans knew this time would come, but it doesn’t make it any easier to get through knowing Verne Lundquist's voice will no longer be heard during some of the biggest moments in sports.

He left golf for last after signing off from his duties as a play-by-play man for college football and college basketball in 2016 and 2018. It seems only fitting that Lundquist picked the Masters as the final sporting event he'll ever call, although he has plenty of memorable lines uttered in all three sports he is known for covering.

If you're curious about the type of person Verne Lundquist is, look no further than the outpouring of love he got during and following his final hours as a sportscaster.

From “In your life!” to his Kick Six call at the 2013 Iron Bowl, Lundquist was the soundtrack of so many unforgettable sports moments. Ever so humble, he accepted his farewell messages and tributes on Sunday with grace.

The 83-year-old Lundquist may be done working, but his voice will forever be remembered by millions of sports fans throughout the years.
