Tiger Woods and Fred Couples have been friends for over 20 years, but the two golf legends captained rival teams of celebrity golfers in the new Celebrity Cup at the Genesis Open.
Tiger played tournament host for the event that benefits his TGR Foundation. The pre-tournament festivities at this year’s event featured a new competition pitting golf-obsessed celebrities against each other
The teams captained by Tiger and Freddie consisted of six celebrities who battled it out over the back nine at Riviera Country Club in a four-ball format.
The new competition was held on Monday, February 11, acting as a fitting opener for what will be an exciting week in Los Angeles.
Tiger’s team will be known as “Team Eldrick,” while Couples’s will be called “Team Frederick.”
Tiger’s team won.
🏆 @TigerWoods starts the week with a win.
