Fred Couples raises 12th Man flag at Seahawks game

Posted at 12:10 PM by Mike Walker | Categories: Fred Couples


Fred Couples is now two for two in ceremonial roles this year. First, Couples captained the U.S. Presidents Cup team to victory in October, then on Monday night the Seattle native raised the "12th Man" flag prior to the Seahawks demolishing the Saints 34-7 at Seattle's CenturyLink Field.

A Seahawks season ticket holder and sports nut who is often seen at NBA games, Couples was thrilled to get the chance to raise the flag, the symbol of the NFL's most maniacal fan base, and even compared the honor to his Masters victory in 1992.

"I've got to be honest, this is more fun than golf ever is," Couples said prior to raising the flag. He also promised to "act like a nut here for about 30 seconds." After watching the Seahawks' video of Couples raising the flag and then breaking a driver on his knee, we can only say, "Mission accomplished."
