Professional golf's biggest names are just like the rest of us. Which means they spent Thanksgiving surrounded by family and friends, probably drinking a little too much wine and of course eating until they had to go put on sweat pants. And then eating some more.

We searched the social sphere to bring you the best highlights from Thanksgiving in the world of golf.

Michelle Wie spent the day with her family, ended up in a #foodcoma and finished the day off with a #postturkeyscotch. Solid little Thursday.

Greg Norman enjoyed his first Thanksgiving as a grandfather with a bacon-encrusted Turkey. And instantly made everyone without a bacon-encrusted turkey insanely jealous.

My first Thanksgiving as a GPA and I am loving every second and my grandson H.

And of course, what Thanksgiving would be complete without a "Happy Gilmore" reunion? Shooter McGavin had the whole cast over for a little Turkey dinner. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was also there, because of course he was.
