In Search Of The Green Jacket
There is the Superbowl for football fans, the World Series for baseball nuts, the NBA championship for round ball fanatics, and the Daytona 500 for red necks, but if your a golfer, there is the Masters. Going into Saturday, a 52 year old pro who was born and raised in Seattle is atop the leader board. Yes, Fred “Boom Boom” Couples is tied for first place so far. Jason Dufner who is tied with Couples at -5 was six years old when Fred played in his first Masters. Couples says he feels young when he plays at Augusta National. Couples, who went to O’Dea High School in Seattle, won the 1992 Masters, is just playing relaxed golf right now. Fellow, and younger golfer Rory McIlroy said,”I hope I’m that cool when I’m 52″. On the other end of this story is the falling apart of Tiger Woods on Friday. Woods hit the ball horribly, cursed, and even kicked a nine iron about 15 feet at the teebox on hole 16. I say go home Tiger, and bring home the green jacket Fred Couples.
