Ahead of his 39th appearance at the Masters, Fred Couples has made his feelings clear once more on the LIV Golf League.

Couples, the 1992 Masters champion, has passionately defended the PGA Tour ever since the emergence of the LIV breakaway and has taken aim at players who have spoken disparagingly about his longtime domain.

This week, 13 LIV players are in the field at Augusta National as the PGA Tour scrambles to thrash out a definitive deal with the Saudi Public Investment Fund which bankrolls the Greg Norman-fronted startup.

And while Couples acknowledges that the standard is high on LIV, he explained why he still has no time whatsoever for the circuit which has caused such disruption to the men’s professional game.
