Golfers around the world took to social media Sunday to tell their mothers how much they love them. Here are some of the greetings we spotted:
Happy Mother's Day to all Mommies, Mamas, Moms, Nanas, Grannies, Grandmas, etc. A day to be thankful...I know I am.

The best golfers in the world sometimes make this game look so easy, it's hard to imagine them having trouble on a shot that would give a weekend hacker fits.
Take Rory McIlroy, the world's No. 1-ranked golfer, for example. On Saturday during the third round of the Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass, he faced this daunting flop shot from the rough surrounding the ninth green.
And here's what happened. Take a whiff, literally:
At least in our case, our flaws and foibles are rarely witnessed by thousands of spectators, let alone millions on television.
Out of the mouths of babes, literally.
After finishing Saturday's third round of the Players Championship, Bubba Watson posted this short video to Twitter of his son Caleb's opinion of Dad's play:

Hey, sometimes the truth hurts, particularly when it comes from a family member who's familiar with your game and isn't afraid to pull his punches.
LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON: Caleb Watson works on his Drive, Chip and Putt skills
Sounds like Caleb may grow up to be a golf instructor, or perhaps even a golf commentator. Move over, Johnny Miller!
John Daly got to fill pitchers Friday night but missed out on the first pitch.
Rain interrupted Daly's plans to throw out the honorary first pitch at Friday night's Chicago White Sox game, but he more than made up for it by tending bar at the ChiSox Bar and Grill at U.S. Cellular Field for thirsty patrons.

The White Sox made him a custom jersey for the evening:

In case you were unaware, the "91/95" stands for his 1991 PGA Championship and 1995 Open Championship victories, not the speeds of his fastball.
