Prominent golf blogger Stephanie Wei has comments from Fred Couples about his recent, noticeable weight loss made this week at a U.S. Senior Open presser in Seattle:
Well, I’ve been dating a girl for about four months and she works out in the morning and the afternoon and night, it seems like. She works out a couple of times a day. And I go to the gym with her and she does her thing, and I just walk on the treadmill and she gives me a couple of other things to do.
But she’s very athletic, and I’ve lost some weight walking. I’m not doing anything — I have a back guy that’s wanted me to lose some weight, but my back actually feels worse today than it did three months ago when I started walking a lot. But I’m not doing anything, I just get on a treadmill while she’s exercising and doing her program. I just go walk on a treadmill. I have lost some weight. It’s been very good. But my back is very tight.
But this weight thing, I just have lost some weight by moderate exercise, nothing crazy.
Couples, who has been going through girlfriends lately the way the McCourts go through loan officers, didn’t identify his new, “very athletic” girlfriend.
No worries. I’ve got the skinny.
• Gator Nation gasps as Urban Meyer still has his eyes on the Irish job.
• Cole Hamels gets all choked up when talking about the New York Mets.
• Pimpin’ ain’t easy - especially when you’re trying to blackmail Al Unser, Jr.
• It’s hard to tell which is more frightening to look at - “Forest Faces”, or the face on this Michael Jordan figurine.

Like every other sports blogger in the known universe, I am childless. Should I ever have a son, though, I will have three ironclad rules for him: 1) Never hit a lady, 2) always wear your seatbelt, and 3) never ever ever engage Tiger Woods in any sort of bet or competition, because he will beat the daylights out of you 100% of the time.
(Also as part of the bet, Fred had to eat his entire golf bag. Here he struggles with a tee.)
Today’s evidence comes from Fred Couples, one of the greatest golfers of all time. Couples is a two-time PGA player of the year and was putting his name on golf video games while Tiger was still an amateur. But now, he’s just another stuffed head in Tiger’s den, dropping eight C-notes to the man in last year’s Target World Challenge. As Couples told GOLF DIGEST:
Last year, I bet him (at the Target World Challenge). I took two shots from him the first day and said, ‘I’ll play you for $200.’ I think he shot 67 and I probably shot 74. So he said, ‘Just keep it. What do you want tomorrow?’ I said, ‘Two shots.’ He beat me again. The third day, he beat me again. The last day, he gave me four shots and said I’ll give you a break-even bet. I was so nervous. He beat me; I gave his wife $800; he snatched it out of her hands so quickly — “That’s my money.”
