Fred Couples will replace the late Payne Stewart in the Skins Game, event organizers said Tuesday.
"I'm very honored to be chosen to replace Payne Stewart," Couples said. "He was a very special person to all of us, not just in the world of golf."
Couples said his charitable contribution for the Nov. 27-28 event at Landmark Golf Club will be made to the Payne Stewart Memorial fund of the First Orlando Foundation.
Stewart died Oct. 25 in a plane mishap.
