Couples entered into Golf Hall of Fame

Fred Couples beat out Davis Love III and Mark O'Meara in the voting to be elected into the World Golf Hall of Fame on Wednesday.

Couples achievements include 15 PGA Tours wins with both the 1992 Masters and two Players Championship titles. He is currently best known as the captain of the Presidents Cup, he will lead Team USA for a third time in the biennial tournament next year.

''There are other people in the Hall of Fame that are maybe good players. But good is a good thing,'' Couples said from Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles. ''I've been good at it for a long time, and I hope to continue to play a few more years.''

''I've won 15 times and a major and all that,'' Couples said. ''But I think one of the things I've done well is played for a long time. Sometimes that is meaningless.

I think when you get in the Hall of Fame, it's more about the finishes you've had, and I know a lot about the baseball Hall of Fame. I know a little bit about the football Hall of Fame, and the way they talk about some people not getting in and waiting a long time.

''For me, at my age of 52, I think it's certainly a great honor and great timing, because it will push me to play a couple more years and see how I can play.''
