Do you pat Emiliano Grillo on the pack for creativity or punch him in the arm for raising the expectations of significant others everywhere a tad bit too high? It’s the question of the moment after the 25-year-old Argentine went all romantic for his wife, Macarena, with this splash birthday wish.

Yep, Grillo hired an airplane to fly over Quail Hollow and drag a sign behind it wishing his sweetie a happy birthday.

OK, lets all say it together: Awwww…

For his chivalry, Grillo was rewarded by shooting an opening-round 68 to be T-7 after the first round at the Wells Fargo Championship.
