Fred Couples is no one-shot wonder. In 43 years as a pro, the Hall of Famer has won 59 tournaments, played in four Presidents Cups and five Ryder Cups, captained three victorious Presidents Cup teams, and earned over $50 million on the course and many millions off it. But for all that Boom Boom has done, there's one shot that everyone remembers.
Ashworth is thrilled to have Fred Couples back. Couples, who joined Ashworth when the company started in 1987, appeared in many of their iconic ads. One ad featured Couples blasting a tee shot while standing on train tracks and aiming at the Dallas skyline off in the distance. Another popular ad featured Couples riding in the backseat of a Cutlass convertible with fellow Ashworth ambassadors John Cook, Ernie Els and Jim Nantz, the CBS announcer (and Couples' teammate from the University of Houston). Posters of some of those ads, all shot by photographer Barry Grimes, have sold for for hundreds of dollars on the internet.
