In 1992, Couples Defied Gravity to Win the Green Jacket
In honor of Fred Couples' turn-back-the-clock performance this week at The Masters, we look back at the classic moment of Couples' career: the 12th hole of the 1992 Masters.
Nursing a slim lead on Sunday, Couples comes to the diabolical par-3 12th, the scene of so many disasters, and narrowly averts one himself when his mis-clubbed tee shot somehow clings to the bank instead of trickling down into Rae’s Creek. Using a masterful chip shot, Couples saves par and goes on to beat Ray Floyd for his only major championship.
