Freddie Boom Boom, Let Me Hear You Say Wayo
By Kickntrue on 3/8/10
Freddie Couples won his second Champions Tour event this weekend. His combined finishes on the Sr. Tour- 2nd, 1st, 1st. It has to be a great feeling to turn 50 and all of a sudden be relevant again in your sport, even if it is on a lesser circuit. You're 49 and fighting to compete. You turn 50 and your the young, limber, newcomer with an advantage on all the old guys.
"In a good way I am full of confidence in my game," said Couples, who opened with rounds of 66 and 64. "I talked to Jay Haas a long time ago and when you are 50 you are the youngest guy out here and if you are a good player like I think I am, I thought I would have some opportunities to win out here."

Couples earned $255,000 to push his Tour-leading total to $691,000.
And when I say "lesser circuit" of course I mean, "he'll still make more money in 2010 than most of us do in 20 years."

I know Freddie has a big following, so hopefully he continues to play well and bring in good crowds for the Champions Tour.

Lets face it, the Champions Tour is only going to get more and more competitive. It is actually pretty cool to think in a few years you will have V.J. and Kenny Perry playing over there as well. I know i will tune in to watch those guys for sure!!

I really like watching the Champions Tour. These guys look like they enjoy what they are doing. I also like the 3 day format much better.
