In just second PLAYERS, Couch has solid week

Chris Couch walked off the 18th green  only slightly disappointed with his final-round 72, having gone double bogey-par-bogey over the final three holes. He won’t complain too much, though, about his 7-under finish.

“There will be a lot of bogeys on 18, but on the 16th I made a bad swing on the second shot,” said Couch. “You can’t miss right there. The course always plays tough on Sunday and I was trying to be patient today. Other than the double at 16, I thought I played great today. When the tough pins are placed in a certain position, you have to hit the middle of the greens and we did that all week.”

It was only the second appearance at THE PLAYERS for the 37-year-old Couch, who has worked on his game at TPC Sawgrass on numerous occasions in recent years when he lived in an RV for two years in St. Augustine.

“I was alone at the time and really did it for my two boys that live nearby and I wanted to be close to them,” said Couch. I figured ‘why buy a house?’”

Couch eventually moved from St. Augustine after marrying his second wife Julia. “We now have a little one together and ended up buying a house in Winter Garden,” Couch said. -- Michael Curet
