Overview

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.

    What a wonderful way to remember Payne

    This book was great. I can't help but cry every time i read it! It helps you understand the man that he was. For anyone who followed Payne in golf this book is a good way to follow his life!

    Heart-Tugging

    Beautifully written. I was amazed by how many lives were affected by Payne's life (including my own)and how his story continues to touch others. A must read for everyone...even those who are not gold fans.

    Top-Notch. Well-balanced and full of perspective.

    Ten times the book that 'The Authorized P.Stewart' is. This is a book that is not jaded by its proximity to the subject. I realize now that Stewart was flawed, as we all are, and that makes him more human and real.
