Fred Couples Races to 7-Shot Lead at AT&T Championship

Fred Couples fired a 62.
FRED COUPLES HAD A GOOD day at TPC San Antonio. The U.S. Presidents Cup captain carded 12 birdies en route to a 10-under 62 in the second round of the AT&T Championship. Freddie’s only blemish on his scorecard was a double bogey at the par-3 4th hole. He’ll take a 7-shot lead over Mark Calcavecchia, who had a 66 on Saturday, into the final round.

Couples opened with a 65 and is 17 under for the Champions Tour event. He has 20 birdies in two rounds. No surprise, he is first in greens in regulation and putting through two rounds.

“You don’t get leads like this very often,” Couples said.

The winner will take home a check for $262,500. I like Freddie’s chances. A lot.

“Odds are we’ve identified this year’s champion,” Calc said. “I don’t see Fred having a bad day.”
