I've been watching a little bit of the first round of the Mitsubishi Electric Championship tonight since it's Fred Couples' debut on the Champions Tour. Fred shot a 7 under par 65 today which is exciting for us Freddie fans.
I have to say the first golfer I ever saw was Fred Couples. It wasn't in person. It was on tv at the 1992 Skins game. He was the reason I decided to watch just a little more golf after that day. He made golf look peaceful and happy and that's what I've gotten out of golf watching for most of the 12 years I've spent watching golf since (I took a five year break in there somewhere). I can't believe he's 50. I hope his play in the next few years makes it even harder for me to believe it.
