Fred Couples drops a Masters bomb on Greg Norman, LIV Golf amid ticket snafu

The rivalry between LIV Golf and the PGA Tour is in full swing at the 88th Annual Masters Tournament.

Earlier this week, Playing Through reported that LIV CEO Greg Norman was denied a ticket to Augusta National. Norman’s son, Greg Jr., confirmed this via social media.

Still, he walked through the gate and bought a ticket on the secondary market to show his support for LIV members. Such behavior is usually frowned upon.

Upon learning of the news, legendary golfer Fred Couples, who played this year but missed out, put his wits to work with young Norman.

“There are 13 LIV Golf League players in the Masters field and no one could get tickets to Greg Norman?” a couple posted on X.

“Did Greg have to buy it?” If you need a shark next year, let me know. ”

The passive-aggressive tone is palpable in Couples.

Freddie, as he is known, is heading home early after suffering through the winds at Augusta National. He shot a 4-over 76 on Friday and finished the tournament at 12 over.

Despite missing out, his post left the impression that the 1992 Masters winner was in good spirits.

That’s despite watching Tiger Woods break his and Gary Player’s record for most consecutive cuts at the Masters.

Woods posted a very impressive even-par on Friday in his second round going into the weekend.

Couples has never been one to shy away from speaking his mind. He took to social media to do it again. All the while attacking LIV Golf and its CEO.
