SNOQUALMIE, Wash. (AP) — It will remain a sore spot with Fred Couples until he’s finally able to add the accomplishment to his resume.

For all the tournament’s won during his career, Couples has still never won playing back home in or around Seattle where he grew up.

Not that he’s had many chances. With Seattle lacking a regular PGA Tour stop the most marquee events that Couples has participated were the 1998 PGA Championship and 2010 U.S. Senior Open, along with being a regular participant in the Boeing Classic since joining the Champions Tour in 2010.

Couples is back at the TPC Snoqualmie Ridge this week trying to win that elusive hometown title in the 10th edition of the popular tournament.
