You gotta love Fred Couples.
Talking about his desire to be a Ryder Cup captain, quoted by Thomas Bonk in the LA Times:
"I can promise you there are 12 guys who don't want to do 75% of the stuff. My goal would be to slough some of the stuff off."
Couples said his first move would be to appoint Michael Jordan and Robin Williams as assistant captains.
"I would have Michael Jordan tell stories every single night and I would have Robin Williams tell jokes for 30 minutes. That's what I want," he said. "I don't want a rah-rah speech. My God. If you need a rah-rah speech to play the Ryder Cup, you've got some serious issues.
"If we lose, we lose because we lose, but I can promise you we'd have a good time."
Furyk raised an eyebrow when he heard Couples' choices as assistants. But he had no problem with the potential candidacy of Couples, who has played on five Ryder Cup teams and four Presidents Cup teams.
"Anyone with that kind of passion, I think Freddie would do a good job," he said.
