Tiger Woods has joked he may start using a yellow golf ball when he returns to action after watching his good friend Fred Couples shoot a final-round 12-under 60 to win the SAS Championship on the PGA Tour Champions earlier this month.
Woods was locked to his television screen two weeks ago as he watched Couples birdie the final seven holes and march to his first victory on the senior circuit since 2017.
It also explained why Justin Thomas was initially baffled when he phoned Woods for a conversation about a certain NFL game that was happening that Sunday.
"I think [Couples] was on 17 or 18 and Tiger called me," recalled Thomas, who at time was watching the Kansas City Chief vs Buffalo Bills game.
"He’s like, ‘Are you watching this?’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, pretty good game.’ He’s like, ‘No, Freddie’s 11 under and he’s playing 18.'"
Woods' caddie Joe LaCava spoke more about Tiger's infatuation for all things Freddie during an interview with PGA Tour SiriusXM earlier this week.
Woods then made a huge revelation after seeing Couples drain birdie putts for fun.
Couples, like Woods, plays a Bridgestone Golf ball.
Only Freddie uses a TOUR B RXS while Tiger plays a white TOUR B XS.
A number of other golfing legends also use a yellow golf ball these days, including four-time major champion Ernie Els.

Woods has yet to confirm his participation in his annual Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas in early December, but here is some hope he will be a last-minute entry into the field.
It is also anticipated that Woods will partner with his beefed-up son Charlie Woods in the annual father-son PNC Championship just before Christmas.
Woods was recently seen caddying for Charlie in a tournament, but one observer noted he still did not look right as he continues to recover from his horror car crash in Los Angeles back in February 2021.
