Caitlyn Jenner created quite a stir Wednesday during the pro-am for the ANA Inspiration when she holed out for eagle on the first hole at Mission Hills Country Club.

Recently retired U.S. soccer star Abby Wambach and the LPGA’s Marina Alex played alongside Jenner on the first nine holes. Alex and Danielle Kang, Jenner’s friend from Sherwood Country Club, switched places at the turn and Kang played the back nine.

Jenner, 66, won the decathlon in the 1976 Olympics as Bruce Jenner and is a single-digit handicap, did not play from forward tees. She was highly visible during Tuesday’s pro-am party where several LPGA players made a point to get photos taken with her.

The group rode the eagle hole-out all the way to the winner's circle. Wambach posted a photo of the trophy on her Instagram:

Last post for the night... Proof we won!!! Yes yes yes
