For decades there have been few instances that the name Fred Couples wasn't closely followed by the word "cool," but on Monday night he was the one that got to utter that term.

Couples, who was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame, gave a great speech, but it was the end when the weight of what just happened caught up to him. The 53-year-old was about to walk off the stage when he broke down, saying to the world, ""Thanks for taking a kid from Seattle and putting him in the Hall of Fame. This is the coolest night of my life."

The coolest guy in the game on the coolest night of his life ... I'd say it was a pretty good day for the game when those two collide.
