Fred Couples will be inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame on Monday, May 6, 2013 in St. Augustine, Fla. In celebration of the occasion – and Freddie's many accomplishments – the team at Ashworth Golf released a limited edition 'Fred Couples Signature' shirt, which will be individually numbered up to 300 – with Fred receiving the first, 1/300 (see image below).

Couples has worn Ashworth on the professional stage since the brand’s inception 25 years ago and has always played a big role in the brand’s advertising. His celebrated career thus far includes 15 PGA Tour Wins, eight Champions Tour wins, a member of five Ryder Cup teams and four Presidents Cup teams. He won the Masters in 1992 and went on to captain the winning U.S. Presidents Cup team in 2009 and 2011, and will once again lead the Americans at Muirfield at the 2013 Presidents Cup. 

“When you think of Ashworth, you immediately think style and of course Fred Couples,” said Susan Bush, VP of Ashworth Apparel. “We are very excited for Fred to be inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame and are extremely honored to create a special shirt that truly reflects his personality and favorite elements.”

The shirt is made with Ashworth's EZ-TEC2 performance fabric and is available in Fred's favorite color, azure. It became available on May 2, for $70 at AshworthGolf.com.

But the clothing makers at Ashworth weren't the only ones eager to congratulate Couples on this monumental achievement. Some of Couples' peers describe Freddie, congratulate him and do their best impersonations of him in the video below.
