When he died in a bizarre plane crash in 1999, U.S. Open golf champion Payne Stewart became a sports icon. Already famous for his colorful knickers and charming cockiness, Stewart had parlayed his golfing talent into a brilliant career. The tragic timing of his death at the height of his career focused the spotlight on him even more.In The Payne Stewart Story, author Larry Guest covers the golfing great’s career, from his start as an unpopular player dubbed “Tinkerbelle” to his standing as one of golf’s most respected professionals. For this book, Guest drew on his 20-year friendship with Stewart and more than 100 hours of taped interviews with some 30 people, including Payne’s wife, Tracey, and his friend and fellow PGA Tour player Larry Rinker. Full of surprises, the book details Payne’s harmonica playing, his standing as the life of the party, and his quiet spiritual growth. The Payne Stewart Story is funny and sad, triumphant and tragic.
