When Fred Couples decided on the 10th tee in Tuesday afternoon's heat to end his practice round, a marshal at the U.S. Senior Open said, “Thank goodness, or we would have been out here another 2 1/2 hours.”
You could see why Wednesday. Couples was the last one off the first tee, around 4 o'clock, and several hundred fans were with him step for step for a practice round.
