Freddie breaks through in big way
Couples is masterful at Augusta in first major win

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - It isn't
just a hot streak; Freddie is for real.
Fred Couples, he of the easy
swing and the easy-going, California
laid-back manner, confirmed his
stature as golf's leading practitioner
with a two-stroke victory Sunday in
the Masters.
le did it on the strength of a
closing 2-under-par 70 - and about
two blades of grass.
Those were the sprigs on a steep
bank, a few inches above the surface
of Raes Creek, that kept his ball
from backing into the water on the
12th hole.
A brilliantly lofted little chip en-
abled Couples to save par - and his
lead - from that precarious position
and sent him into the last six holes at
Augusta National with a 2-shot ad-
vantage.
Couples brought it home in style,
in sharp contrast to the putting prob-
lems that embarassed him over the
final nine holes of the 1990 PGA
Championship at Shoal Creek.
This time he finished by running
in a 10-foot birdie putt on the 14th
that all but slammed the door on his
challengers and assured the Masters
of its first American winner since
Larry Mize in 1987.
Couples, now 32 and just reach-
ing his golfing maturity, scored his
third victory of the year, the ninth of
his career and his sixth since last
June.
It was at that time, in the U.S.
Open, that Couples began a streak
that now has produced 20 finishes of
sixth or better in 25 worldwide
starts. In that period, he has col-

lected $2,666,725 in worldwide
earnings.
The $270,000 he collected for
this title also gave Couples
$1,008,162 already this year, the
most ever at this stage of a season.
Couples also broke Europe's
string of four consecutive victories
six of the last nine.
If there was any downside to the
triumph that lifted Couples to a new
plateau of achievement, it is that it
came at the expense of his mentor
and Ryder Cup teammate Ray
Floyd.
The indomitable Floyd, trying to
add a second green jacket and a fifth
major championship to his Hall of
Fame record, simply could not
match Couples' controlled march
over the back and finished second at
277.
At age 49, he was attempting to
become the oldest man to win this
title and the oldest to win any of the
majors, which also includes the U.S.
and British Opens and the PGA.
It may have been his last chance.
And the enormous gallery,
streaming through the Georgia pines
and over the rolling hills, sensed that
something special was happening
before them.
As Floyd, grim-faced as ever,
grinding away as only he can, fought
his way to a round of 71, they
saluted him with a warmth and re-
spect previously reserved for only
two others, Jack Nicklaus and
Arnold Palmer.
Floyd received standing ovations
aftV his two-putt birdie on the 15th,

and on every green thereafter. But
the birdies he had to have eluded
him, his chances became more re-
mote as the holes slipped by and
eventually disappeared at the 18th.

Floyd waited for Couples at the
18th, was the first man to reach him
after Fred holed out, and hugged the
young man he helped reach the top
of the golfing world.
