Fred Couples


Q. Before we talk about your golf this week, let's just get a health check from you. You've been out a lot this year with recurring back issues, only played a handful of tournaments. How does it feel this week?
FRED COUPLES: Well, it feels good. I played at Augusta and then that's the last time I played, and I went to Chicago for the Encompass to kind of get my feet wet. And I wouldn't miss this for the word. I love the old Open and playing in that, and the Senior Open, it's always been fun. I was lucky enough to win at Turnberry, so I had planned on coming. I feel pretty good. Today will be a test but I think I have maybe three hours before I'll play again. So I'm going to go and rest. But to play maybe 30 holes is going to be a lot for me. But I'm looking forward to it. I love Sunningdale and it's nice to be here.

Q. What's been the strength of your game so far over these two rounds?
FRED COUPLES: Well, I think we had a great pairing. Those guys were birdieing every hole and I caught up to them a little bit. And then unfortunately they made a couple bogeys coming in, and I made a couple of nice pars. It was playing pretty hard out there. But a great pairing with Miguel and Bernhard trying to figure out the course. I only had really one round on this. But I hit the ball really well off the tee, and that's the key out there. I kept it out of the bunkers and everything, and made my share of putts. But the holes that are drivable are the ones that I played very, very well on the par 5s. The rest of the course I need to play a little better, but the shorter holes, I've done fine.
