Known in the tour locker rooms as ‘Boom Boom’ for his unassuming enormous length off the tee, and affectionately known to the extended mrbojumbles family as ‘The Silver Fox’ for his dashing shades of silver & his sultry good looks. This coupled with his timeless butter swing – the benchmark for the word pure – has had millions of golfers, sport fanatics, and even his fellow tour flushers the world over in awe since they first laid eyes on the great man. Freddie, Fred, Mr. Skins, Boom Boom, The Silver Fox… whatever you know him as, oh baby he’s delicious.
More to come…

Winning the ’92 Masters is one way of getting on the cover of Sports Illustrated.
At the 2010 US Masters, American-flusher, Fred Couples, claimed the first round lead after a brilliant 66. The pure-swining Silver Fox grabbed the headlines but for more than just his classy round of six under. Freddie was turning heads while striding the fairways in his new Ecco Golf Street Shoes – with no fucking socks!!!
