It’s Love For Fred Couples
by Jeff Skinner
So the PGA Tour kicks back into gear today at The Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, North Carolina. The boys will be trying to earn enough FedEx Cup points to qualify for next week’s Barclays.
Fred Couples has made a strange decision. He has opted out of the Champions Tour Jeld-Wen Tradition in Oregon, a senior major, to play in North Carolina. At 164th on the FedEx Cup list he would need a really great finish to qualify for the playoffs. But, Freddy being Freddy offered his explanation to The Golf Channel last night. He said he has been spending time with his girlfriend in Charlotte so he decided to stay local instead of making the cross country flight (even though next week he’s playing in Seattle). Ah, the power of love. Fred has always walked to his own beat and this week is no different. It must be love for Freddy in North Carolina.
