Fred Couples Wins Cap Cana Champions Event

This is cool - one of my all time favorite golfers Fred Couples is on a tear - and he won this past weekend in the Dominican Republic:

CAP CANA, Dominican Republic (AP) -- When Fred Couples joined the Champions Tour this year, most everyone predicted success befitting a 15-time PGA TOUR winner and Masters champion.

Couples shot a 62, breaking the course record at the 7,170-yard, par-72 Punta Espada Golf Club and winning the Cap Cana Championship on Sunday by two strokes.

He made 11 birdies in the final round and finished the tournament at 21-under 195. Corey Pavin finished second.

"It was an unbelievable day," said Couples who made five birdies in a row from the second through sixth hole. "The first six or seven holes, there was an eagle, birdies and putts going in from everywhere."
