Couples On Phil's Ryder Cup Benching: "Are you kidding me?"

Joe Passov was at the unveiling of a 6-hole kids course designed by Brian Curley at Southern Dunes where Fred Couples was the special guest.

During a clinic for the youngsters, Couples was asked about the 2014 Ryder Cup. It's clear one of Captain Watson's decisions was bothering him...

Asked about the Ryder Cup, Couples said, “I'm not bashing Tom Watson, but sitting Mickelson, your best team player? Are you kidding me?" Couples, the 1992 Masters champion, has long been a close friend of Watson, whose captaincy of the US team was widely criticized after the September loss in Scotland.
