Fred Couples completed a dream two-shot


The American trailed overnight leader Bernhard Langer by one shot coming into the final TaylorMade RocketBallZ RBZ Irons round, but while Langer endured a forgettable 75 to finish in a tie for sixth, Couples saved some of his best golf for last to steal the show and the trophy.Couples finished on nine under, while Gary Hallberg finished two shots back in second after a 66. Carl Mason (66) and Dick Mast (67) shared third place a further three shots back, while Langer joined Ping G20 Driver a four-man group in sixth place on two under.Tied for the lead with two holes left to play at Turnberry, Couples made back-to-back birdies on the final two holes to seal the win and claim his second senior major, becoming the sixth player to win The Senior Open in his first appearance.It was a very fun day," said Couples. "Being paired with Bernhard, you've got to play great Ping G20 Irons and for a long time there, we were neck and neck."But for me I felt like I was hitting the ball very strong, very solid and I was really lucky that it didn't rain because I'm not very good in the rain! I don't wear a golf glove; I had two gloves in the bag that were all weather gloves and I was scared to death to ever put those on.
