Pro golfers took to social media early Saturday and throughout the day – beginning with posts from the PGA Championship at Oak Hill via Twitter:

Rickie Fowler, @RickieFowlerPGA: "#GOTIME"

Ian Poulter @IanJamesPoulter, before teeing off: "Saturday morning at the last major of the year. Feels like a great day to make a run."

Poulter, afterward: "I was absolutely [expletive] today. I the best news is I get back to Orlando really early afternoon to see my wife and kids. Always a bright side."

Poulter: "Well played @McIlroyRory. Very solid round of golf today."

Justin Rose, @JustinRose99: "Not the finest start!! What could've went wrong did! It was a long day trying to just hang in there and recover. #Only1MajorThisYearThen"

Zach Johnson, @ZachJohnsonPGA: "Executives of the PGA of America #dufnering for #duffdaddy this Sat morn of the @PGAChampionship. @JasonDufner has gone viral."

Others posted from afar with their thoughts about the PGA – not all of them pro golfers:

Michelle Wie, @themichellewie: "Loving the idea that fans can vote for pin positions! #Coolidea #pgachamp"

Jonathan Garrick, @garrickjonathan: "Who ever would have guessed the fans picked the pin closest to the water on the 15th, amateurs...."

Olin Browne, @OlinBrowne: "Looks as though Oak Hill is firming up. Now we'll all see the genius of Donald Ross #ClassicCourse"

Kristy McPherson, @KRISTY2208: "I see that Rochester rough is giving the guys fits too!"

Bob Estes, @BobEstesPGA: "Interesting to see that Justin, Hunter, & Tiger are all struggling this week. I hope Justin isn't hurt(+7 after 7)."

Gary Player, @garyplayer: "Sad to see most of our South African players miss the cut @PGAChampionship but all the best to Tim Clark over the weekend."

Evan Longoria, @Evan3Longoria: "Wow. Fun to watch that pounding @JasonDufner just put on Oak Hill. #dufnering at Dodger Stadium!"

John Rollins, @John_Rollins: "Eric church band Dufnering on stage. @JasonDufner @michaeltoddtn"

Kyle Thompson, @KyleThompsonPGA: "#Gamecock fans need a reason to pull for Henrik Stenson? He married a ex-gamecock golfer Emma Lofgren and practiced w/men's team a lot. #PGA"

Greg Norman, @SharkGregNorman: ' “@GolfweekSchupak: @SharkGregNorman with a bold prediction for his mate Adam Scott: "He will win going away!!" And why not pull for a mate?'

Norman: "Love the contouring of the Par 5 4th green @OakHillCC. Too bad TV does not show it. Gr8 design gr8 course for @PGAChampionship or any major."

Norman: "Impressive play by Jim @PGAChampionship. Most of the day had the right weight on his shots. @OakHillCC bared her teeth 2moro will b exciting"

Joe Ogilvie, @ogilviej: "Would be pretty epic to see Adam Scott get in a Tiger-like zone with the putter for next 5-6 years. How many majors would be on his shelf?"

And still others were focused elsewhere the world:

JJ Killeen, @jjkilleentcu: "Gonna have to make some birds this afternoon at the @Hunterhaas invitational."

Bubba Watson, @bubbawatson: "Missed cut = @jtedscott gets home for daughter's birthday party, @tweetlessfish spend time with dad, more family time for me! #GodIsGood"

Joost Luiten, @joostluiten: "What a great place,niagara falls!Missing cut by 1 always feels bad but seeing this place makes you forget golf a bit"

Steven Fox, @StevenFox4: "Chattanooga to Nashville to Boston... #usam #repeat"
