Apparently... Perhaps he's taking time to reflect on life and his goals. Geez Freddie, go to Mayo Clinic and find a surgeon who can fix your back. Then go see Butch Harmon, get your game going again, and quit hangin with these gold-digging, trashy women!

Sooo, I take your response (or lack thereof) to mean one of a few things:

1. You are Amy or related to her
2. You have no idea what you're talking about (likely)
3. You're related to Fred's deceased wife Thais and just want to badmouth him.

I'd take him any day of the week, issues and all.

He needs to find the right woman for him and he will.
he's cool and very henson....
Fabiola,
you obviously have not have a personal encounter with Mr. Couples.
He is a complete yerk and a primadonna!.
I have known him for many many years. I am a fan of his when it comes to golf and golf only. He has treated people poorly, especially his caddy, fans and women. He is so terribly self absorbed and narcacistic, rude and inconsiderate - you want to stay clear of him at all cost.

I had an encounter in 1996; VERY different than my encounter in 2011. I excused his disengagement in May at Shoal Creek as playing poorly, back pain, and not feeling well (he had a cold). Joe, on the other hand, was wonderful. So sad that someone as talented and charismatic (as I remember him in '96) had changed so drastically; I chose to believe that he is still awesome Freddie, just having a bad day.

He is hooking up with people he should run from. I think he is going through his mid life spell.

I aggree with you. he has no regard for your feelings. He makes promise and makes you feel so love. He hooks you and then dumps you.

Since Thais, Fred is going through a different woman every year. There was only i woman he played good golf when he was with her. that was Julie. He cheated on her and dumped her and he is been going down hill fast. He needs to change his crowd of people.

Heidy, you clearly are less knowledgeable than you think - he and his caddy have been close friends for over twenty years. If treating him poorly means encouraging him to take a position with a younger, talented golfer, with whom he cold make a lot more money than with Fred, you are clearly as decent a judge of character as you are a speller. P.S., the correct spelling is "narcissistic".

Well, Cathy, you seem to be quite the expert on Mr. Couples. Just out of curiosity, what's your relationship to Julie?

Who is Fred's flavor this year? Where is he living? At one tourney they said he lived in New Port Beach CA. I hear he is building a house in la Quinta.

The rumor is Fred has bought a house in Brentwood CA and has a new lady name Mary.
Did he split from Midge or did she leave him?
He is missed 2 events.

Rumor has it he asked Midge to move into his CA home w/ her son then all of the sudden they are split. Not sure who broke up w/ whom, but probably he dumped her (that's been the trend after a yr or so). Heard too his new gal is a newsperson or news exec from CA (named Mary or Maryann). Wonder if she will be w/ him at the Sr PGA this week.

Since she has a job she might not can go until the weekend. I know that Fred ask Midbe to move to CA with him. How can he do this to a young boy. Not unless Midge wanted a ring and Fred said no and she decided to stay in Texas. That is where her family is.
The CBS Woman chase after Fred. She is not like Midge at all. I think Fred probally wants to break into TV.
