Fred Couples on Champions Dinner, Mickelson and Garcia

Fred Couples will be one of the most interesting people at the Champions Dinner before the Masters. Couples is a man who often criticizes LIV Golfers and their decision. Phil Mickelson and Sergio Garcia will also be at the Dinner, and it will be interesting to see their reactions.

"You know, I'm not expecting anything different," Couples said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com "I sit in a great spot, so I'm down by all the beautiful people that I've sat with, and it's not that the other ones aren't, but I'm saying Nicklaus, Tiger, Floyd, myself, Sandy Lyle, and then right to the head of the table."

Fred Couples explained his statements in which he did not spare LIV Golfers.

However, he is like that, and sometimes he says a lot in anger. "So for 20 years almost Raymond has told me where to sit and how to do it, and I'm not near a whole lot of people. I've made comments, but they need to understand if they've looked at anything I've ever said, I call myself the same stuff I'm calling them, I just don't think they should bash the PGA Tour or anybody, just go play golf.

Tomorrow night will be a great dinner, will be a lot of fun, and people have asked me are you going to get paired, I'm like, I would love to be paired with Phil. I mean, he's one of the best players that ever played. He loves this place as much as I do, and if we did, we'd look at each other on the first hole and we'd have a good time." Couples reacted to the reporter's question about what the situation will be regarding Mickelson and Garcia, and whether there will be sparks between them.

"If one wants to stop and ask why I'm picking on them, then I'm all for it, but I don't really think I've done anything horrific," he said. "They're making comments and I'm replying to them. That's it."
