Rock and roll icon Prince died April 21 after being found unresponsive in an elevator at his recording studios in Chanhassen, Minn. He was 57.

Prince Rogers Nelson transcended genres and generations by flawlessly conquering rock and roll, funk, R&B and pop in smash hits like “Kiss,” “Nothing Compares 2 U,” and “Purple Rain.” He was said to have been battling the flu a week ago and had postponed two shows in Atlanta before traveling back home to Minnesota, having to make an emergency medical landing on the way. An autopsy is set to further investigate the cause of the icon’s death.

Meanwhile, golfers around the world took to Twitter to pay tribute to the artist who so greatly shaped their lives, most notably Tiger Woods, who invited Prince to play at his foundation’s Tiger Jam event in 2004. On Woods’ website, the performance is described as, “amazing” and “one of the all-time greatest Tiger Jam performances.”
