In 2024, Fred Couples made jest of LIV golfers who failed to secure a ticket for Greg Norman.

The 2024 Masters has been two days of thrilling action and intense rivalries in Augusta, Georgia. The unexpected showdowns that have captured our attention include Zach Johnson facing off against the spectators, Jason Day challenging fashion critics, and Tyrrell Hatton taking on Patrick Reed – although it’s not surprising to see Hatton fighting anyone who crosses his path.

Next comes the classic matchups, such as PGA Tour players versus LIV athletes and Greg Norman competing against Augusta National. Remarkably, a solitary tweet on Friday evening merged these two categories.

The news of LIV CEO having to purchase his own event tickets from the secondary market made Fred Couples aware, leading him to ridicule all the players in LIV for not supporting their commissioner.

“An olive branch was extended by the 1992 Masters champ to his fellow World No.1, despite initial dagger-like feelings.”

Freddie has been having a difficult week. His performance, which was significantly impacted by his bad back, left him feeling embarrassed and to make matters worse, Tiger Woods broke his consecutive cut streak record at the Masters Tournament.

Unlike Norman, who doesn’t have a lifetime invite to Augusta National for Masters week, Freddie is a Masters champ and therefore has that privilege. It’s an honour beyond monetary value.
