Couples outlasts Cook in playoff to win Senior Players
HARRISON, N.Y — Fred Couples knocked in a 3-foot birdie putt on the third playoff hole Sunday to defeat John Cook and win the Senior Players Championship for his first major victory on the Champions Tour.
Couples did not have his best day of putting and missed a birdie on 18 that would have given him the win after trailing by two strokes most of the day. He won the playoff when a second shot on the 17th hole landed a few feet shy of the hole, setting up a short tap-in for the win.
Cook held a share of the lead for nine holes but bogeyed on No. 16 and missed birdie putts on the final two holes, forcing the second straight playoff and fourth overall in this event. Peter Senior finished third with a par 71 and was at 10 under for the tournament.
