Fred Couples, Who Teamed With Jim Nantz in College, Just Fixed a Mistake He Had ‘No Clue’ He Made at Augusta National After Winning The Masters in 1992

It’s certainly no secret that The Masters has a number of traditions, one of which is the winner donating a club used during their victory to Augusta National. It’s a tradition that began with the very first edition of The Masters in 1934 when champion Horton Smith gave up his putter. The following year, Gene Sarazen donated the ball he used to make his famous albatross at the 15th on the way to victory but after that, every champion donated a club to Augusta…all but one, that being 1992 champ and former No. 1 player in the world, Fred Couples. Couples, who was actually a college teammate of the longtime voice of The Masters, Jim Nantz, was actually unaware that this tradition even existed up until recently and finally completed Augusta National’s collection just a few days back.

The Day Hideki Matsuyama Lost $143,000 in 2 Minutes, 12 Seconds

Hideki Matsuyama has made more than $31 million over the course of his young career — and that’s just the cash he’s earned on the PGA Tour, where he’s already in the top 40 on the all-time money list. Throw in the money he earned on the Japan Golf Tour, where he’s won eight times, and that figure obviously goes up. However, while Matsuyama has already made a ton of money, he should actually have an extra $143,000 in his bank account (minus taxes, of course), an amount he lost after getting hit with a ridiculous one-stroke penalty for slow play at The Open Championship in 2013, which was the first time he was truly in contention at a major.
