The scores didn’t completely add up for Fred Couples when he sold his Newport Beach, California, home earlier this month.

According to Zillow, Couples’ home on Winged Foot Lane officially sold last weekend for $3.25 million. Sure, that’s a tidy sum, but it’s about a half-million dollars less than Couples originally listed the property at last year.

Couples, who has 15 PGA Tour wins and 13 more on the PGA Tour Champions circuit, had dropped the price in February, June and again in August before finally finding a buyer.

He bought the Los Angeles-area property in 2015 for $3.475 million.

The five-bedroom, five-bathroom estate sits in the middle of the gated and ultra-exclusive Big Canyon Country Club, widely considered one of the priciest clubs to join in the country.

The house, which was built in 1972, isn’t far from the Pacific Ocean and is also close to the University of California-Irvine.

The golf course was built by Robert Muir Graves and opened in 1971.

The club hosted the 2014 U.S. Senior Amateur competition.
