Fred Couples hits lava and makes eagle
There’s always been something about Fred Couples. The easy going nature, the silky smooth swing and his ability to just seem cool, especially compared to his boring contemporaries, made him a fan favourite for his entire career on the PGA Tour. Being pretty good at golf helped too, I’m sure.
Couples plays mostly on the Champions Tour these days, and is a favourite to win pretty much any tournament he enters on the 50 and over circuit. In Friday’s opening round at the Mitsubishi Championship, he did something that seemingly only Fred Couples could pull off.
Yes, that’s Fred Couples playing a ball off of lava and making eagle. It doesn’t get much better than that.
