It's Saturday and I've put in a punishing week making up Tiger Woods stories so thanks to Rex Hoggard for telling me that Fred Couples, and not Paul Azinger, looks like being the next Team USA Ryder Cup Captain.

Hoggard says that at the latest meeting of the task force......

Players en masse threw their support behind Couples to be the next American skipper both publicly and privately. It’s why he had a meeting with PGA of America chief executive Pete Bevacqua in early December to talk about a Couples captaincy.

While Couples can at times go astray in conversations, rambling off topic with amusing anecdotes and observations, on this he was very direct when asked about the opportunity.

“I’d love to do it. Whoever is the next captain I believe they want other players involved who would be the next few captains,” Couples said. “It would be fun.”
 If Freddie thinks it's going to be "fun" maybe he's not the right man for the job? Just a thought.

And what a pic by Adam SchupaK of Freddie avoiding a selfie with a fan!
