Masters Champ Fred Couples Unaware of One Masters Champions Tradition
AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) – No one ever told Fred Couples about the Masters tradition of champions donating a club they used. He finally realized it when he read an email that he was the only champion to not have a club in the trophy room. Couples fixed that this week. He brought the MacGregor persimmons driver he used in 1992 when he won the Masters. Couples says as long as he’s been coming to Augusta National, he didn’t even know where the clubs were on display. Had he known, he might not have brought the driver. But it’s the only club he could find.
