The inaugural Augusta National Women's Amateur has been a hit with average golf fans and stars alike since the first tee shots were hit on Wednesday at Champions Retreat.
But the final round on the hallowed grounds of Augusta National seemed to really resonate with people, as entertainers from Niall Horan and Jimmy Fallon to golf royalty like Jack Nicklaus took to Twitter to congratulate the women playing on being a part of such a historic moment.
Check out the best social media reaction from the Augusta National Women's Amateur, where Jennifer Kupcho became the first winner of the event after shooting a final-round 67.
