  • FREDDY COUPLES...KICKING BUTT!

    I am actually enjoying watching the Champions tour now! I guess it is partially due to the fact I watched these guys play in their prime years, but I also find that they are coming to the Champions tour these days in great shape and still able to compete on PGA tour. With Freddy setting that new record of 3 out of 4 wins he could rack up some serious numbers for the next guys to chase. Even with his bad back he seems unstopable right now.

    I remember in his late 30's and early 40's he was saying he was more or less done with pro golf, his back just couldn't take it, but here he is a decade later still playing and seemingly enjoying playing. Great to see! Just goes to show you that even if their bodies give out, their competitive drive seems to still be there. Can't wait to see guys like Funk and Singh out there in a year or 2. It was great watching Pavin and Couples battle it out like the "good ol' days"!

    Don't know if any of you noticed but when Couples hit his drive on Sunday on the 16th (I think it was 16) you could see the sign for the hole, and it was a 348 yard par 4. This is drive and sand wedge for Freddy. The par 5's are all reachable for him too. The Champions tour really makes the courses much easier than the PGA, at least for their regular events, which I am Ok with. You don't need to see guys 50+ years old get beaten up on a 7800 yard course, however I hope they continue to challenge them in their majors, particularily the US OPen.

    BTW......also noticed when watching that Freddy jumped into a cart after his shot. Are they allowed to use carts on the Champions tour?

        It used to call the Senior Tour so I guess they are just too old to walk.

              It's the same for all the players on the tour, so he's still kickin butt.

              Happy for him - I love watching his swing.

                I thought all the senior tour players are supposed to be the torch bearers of golf tradition? What about the tradition of walking?

                  I agree.....at 50 you should still be able to walk a golf course, especially one that is 600 yards shorter than you are used to.

                    Go back 8-10 yrs ago and i didnt watch much. i didnt really know all the old timers..but in recent yrs with funk and couples, nick price etc..the guys i watched for yrs on pga...are now on there and i really enjoy it...except that the golf channel doesnt show it in high def.
                    Irritating. I watched them in..where was it...dominican? this past wknd..and they use that uploaded fake SD HD crap..that is all fuzzy..would be nice to see high def tropical courses like that..but its low def.

                    but yeah...me likey. specially freddie ..who only lost that debut due to tom watson schooling him like a little girl with lights out play...but a second and now three..wins...out of four? wow!

                            LOL - the old stuff I get (though I can't watch old sports games in full...just like I almost never PVR sports - I need to watch it live), but current stuff, I really don't understand.

                              funny you say that bud...cuz i have changed..i know in some ways it ruins the feeling of watching live sports..but golf has so many ben cranes...jim furyks.......jb holmes..wait..ok..he is better..but i actually tape golf so i can fast forward thru the waaaaaaaaay...too many commercials....and when a guy is circling and circling a putt...i can hit ff...until just before he take the putter back....i can watch four hrs or three hrs of golf..in less than half the time.
