It has been called the greatest U.S. Open in the Open's over one-hundred-year history. Veteran sports journalist Bill Chastain crafts the dramatic story of Payne Stewart's 1999 U.S. Open victory by combining extensive research with interviews of those who made it unique. Payne at Pinehurst shows how Stewart dealt with his stunning U.S. Open defeat in 1998 and planned victory for the championship that meant so much to him. Stewart's conquest of Pinehurst No.2, while fending off Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods, David Duval, and Vijay Singh in an epic battle where every swing held significance, is the stuff of which golf legends are made. From compelling action by the best golfers in the world to the tournament's dramatic conclusion, Payne at Pinehurst shows readers why the 1999 U.S. Open is regarded as the best U.S. Open ever played.Chastain, Bill is the author of 'Payne At Pinehurst A Memorable U.S. Open in the Sandhills of Carolina' with ISBN 9780312330101 and ISBN 0312330103.
