With 63 titles won and bank account so full, golfer Fred Couples is regarded as one of the richest pro-golfers ever. But his personal life is far less stable than his professional.
Net Worth And Salary?
With a net worth of a whopping $120 million, which Fred earned from winning different titles, including the 1992 Master’s Tournament, Senior Players Championship, and Senior British Open, he is one of the richest golfers in the world. The former world number one golfer, Fred's first victory as a professional golfer came at the Kemper Open in 1983.

With money comes luxury and Fred certainly has earned his. Couples owns some lavish mansions like the one in Brentwood which he sold for $6 million and another $3.475 million house in Newport Beach. He also owned a Palm Beach mansion, but it was given to his former wife Deborah as a divorce settlement.
Apart from being a pro-golfer, Couples is also a co-designer of golf courses along with his partner, Gene D. Bates. Further, Fred also owns a Golf Club in Los Cabos, Mexico, which is worth at least a few million.
Fred Couples’ Shattered Married Life:
Now let’s move on to a sad part of Couples’ life, i.e. his failed married life.
Couples first got married to his high-school sweetheart, Deborah Couples, in 1981. After 11 years of marriage, the couple finally called it quits in 1992 and their divorce finalized later in 1993. The reason behind the divorce is said to be Deborah’s obsession over living a lavish life according to Deborah.

Five years after divorcing with Deborah, Fred got married again, in 1998, this time with a woman named Thais Baker. But just like his first marriage, his second marriage also ended abruptly. They never actually got a legal divorce but were separated in 2009.

He doesn’t have any children with any of his ex-wives. The sad thing about his married life is not just separation but also the death of both his ex-wives. His first wife, Deborah committed suicide on May 26, 2001, jumping off from the roof of the Kresge Chapel, 70 feet above the ground.
His second wife though had a medical condition behind her demise. She was diagnosed with breast cancer which eventually took her life in 2009.
Apart from his two failed marriages, he was in two public relationships too. He dated Nadine Moze in 2014. Before that, Midge Trammell used to be his girlfriend.

Fred Couple, Peerless At The Age of 59
A year after his hiatus, Fred Couple is back, and he has yet again shown why he is respected as one of the greatest Veterans in Professional Golf. After his year-long break due to Chronic Back pains, he's back on the top. He took part in Augusta National last April and raised quite a lot of heads with amazing plays.
He started with just three shots off the lead after posting a 2-under-par score and continued ramping up scores.
"I really know the course very well, I feel like my age is still OK because I can drive it far enough. I'm not long like I used to be on this kind of course, but it still plays where I can reach a lot of these greens with shorter clubs to make the ball stop around the hole." Says Couple who hit six birdies, the last of them at No. 18 to close his round with a flourish.
Similarly, he has been doing great so far at the Masters, and he's amongst the top on the leaderboards.
However, in recent days, Fred has been undergoing several injuries which have forced him to think about retirement. Back in June 2018, when he was participating in the U.S. Senior Open in June 2018, he went through terrible pain caused by his chronic back ailment.
Despite the pain, he continued on with the tournament and even though he didn't win, Fred succeeded in giving the winner a fight for the title.
Further, when Fred competed at the PGA tour in October 2018, he revealed that the season would be his last. However, the pro-golfer is yet to announce his retirement publicly.
