Brandt Snedeker and Angel Cabrera were tied for the lead after the third round of the Masters, a Saturday that will be remembered for Tiger Woods’ penalty.
Dustin Johnson and Freddie Couples are the two Americans who stole the early headlines.
20 years after Fred Couples won The Masters in 1992, the 52-year-old finds himself tied for the lead with Jason Dufner at 5 under. When a reporter asked Couples if he thinks he can win, he replied with no hesitation, “yes, I feel I can!”
Couples was criticized in some corners for picking Woods, who had fallen out of the top 50 for the first time in 15 years and had gone two years without winning.
The Americans have set off in their bid to win a fourth straight Presidents Cup in gorgeous weather and before a massive gallery at Royal Melbourne.
So much about this Presidents Cup resembles the last time it was played at Royal Melbourne, from the sudden drop in temperatures to Tiger Woods winning only one point to a final day that holds so little drama.
Fred Couples ran away with the Champions Tour’s AT&T Championship, shooting a bogey-free 6-under 66 on Sunday for a seven-stroke victory.
Greg Norman doesn’t think much of the way Tiger Woods plays golf these days, saying he would not have picked him to play in the Presidents Cup.
