I find it kind of funny that Couples is making a "career" out of being a team captain. Especially when his style is to be very hands off. But maybe that's what the guy needs, Freddy seems to be "one of the guys" rather than trying to coach them. Maybe more or just as important than parings the players with their partners it's about creating the right atmosphere in the team room.
I've heard people question whether Fred would be a good Ryder Cup captain, and I just don't get it. I think that Fred is a great captain. Whether it's The Presidents Cup or the Ryder Cup, it doesn't matter.
The way he keeps us loose and how much fun we have -- it's just great to play for him. He's a lot more competitive than people realize. He just doesn't show it. He shows it with us around, but the public doesn't see it.
