WITH Fred Couples ripping up the Champions Tour and proving how good the form was by leading the US Masters after the first round it is a good time to have a look at some analysis of his swing.
The Couples swing is often described as “like butter”, “silky smooth” and the like– all the things you would just love to have your swing compared to.
This video is a detailed analysis by top US coach and sometime Couples contemporary Wayne Defrancesco, who points out that while Couples has some unorthodox moves he is “a freak” with outstanding rhythm.
“Everybody would love to be able to just stand up to the ball, get the club what appears to be completely out of whack and then just flush it down the fairway,” Defrancesco says.
As he says, “Everyone would love to be Freddie”.
