In case you missed it on Monday night, Jimmy Fallon -- host of "The Tonight Show" -- had a hilarious segment where he handed out superlatives based on headshots of PGA Tour players.

In the segment, Fallon took playful jabs at the likes of Miguel Angel Jimenez, Victor Dubuisson, Rickie Fowler, PGA Champion Rory McIlroy and others (and... not to nitpick, but funny man Fallon could use some help on name pronunciation on some of these players).

You can see the video here:

Well, on Tuesday, the folks at the PGA Tour responded to the superlatives with one of their own for Fallon via this tweet:

Well played, PGA Tour. Well played.
