HARRISON, N.Y. - Fred Couples made a three-foot birdie putt on the third hole of a playoff with John Cook to win the Seniors Players Championship for his first major victory on the Champions Tour. "I knew when it was going, it was a really good shot," Couples said. "I didn't think it was going to be short and trickle down the hill. I just felt like it was going to be right there. It was simple yardage - 76 yards - and it hit soft. That extra rain certainly helped that shot, but I knew it was going to be close.
