Freddie leaves 'em laughing

May 13, 2009

Fred Couples, the captain of the U.S. Presidents Cup team, was part of a Presidents Cup news conference on Wednesday (with PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem and International team captain Greg Norman), and was addressing some of the difficulties of a captaincy, notably in choosing clothing.

"I've got Anthony Kim and Kenny Perry," he said. "They are 26 or 27 years apart. Anthony Kim wears his pants down by his ankles and Kenny Perry wears his up by his chest."

Norman has a similar problem, of course, with Vijay Singh representing the older generation and Camilo Villegas the younger generation.

"I want to see Vijay with a pair of spray-on pants," Norman said.
