49 Years Young

He still has it. The swagger, and that magical sense about him. Smooth as silk. For 71 holes at the Northern Trust Open he was in the hunt. One errant shot means the difference on the PGA Tour and Fred Couples did something on Sunday you don't normally see. A seven-iron on the final hole sprayed dead right catching one of the towering Eucalyptus trees that line the right side of the 18th fairway at Riviera. Another huge check and more reason to hang out on his couch and count his money. Phil Mickelson was victorious in the end but Fred Couples still has it, at 49 years young.
