Apparently some guy tried to get out of a passenger plane in mid-flight Sunday, and blamed his behavior on having a bad Mother's Day.

Certainly Pat Perez and Johnathan Byrd did not try to get out in the middle of their flights home, but a very determined and focused Lucas Glover made sure they both had a bad Mother's Day by winning the Wells Fargo Championship.

Actually, Perez seemed to make sure his Sunday was going to be pretty jagged when he started losing his temper as soon as things didn't go exactly the way he wanted them too. 

I can not imagine why anyone would deliberately get that angry and still try to play championship golf at a tournament-winning level, but that seems to be his temperament. 

Good thing Pat isn't a boxer or the chin-leading he does as soon as things go awry would certainly get him decked in the ring.

Byrd was more competitive right to the end.

The winning attitude of the day though was definitely Glover's, who has his hat down as if he is playing high-stakes poker.

Cool hand Lucas seems to be intent not only on swinging well, but on maintaining a certain demeanor.

A certain even keel that he believes is the thing that will get him the trophy. 

Combined with his length off the tee, great iron play and fearless putting, it's an attitude that not only got him the victory at Quail Hollow, but could serve him well in a bid to pull a second U.S. Open rabbit out of the hat at Congressional in June.
