Alec Velasco
This book was a biography of Payne Stewart. Payne Stewart is one of the best and most famous gilders who ever played the game. He was especially known for his golf apparel. He would wear a "tam'O shatter hat," with checkered knickers, and a sweater. Although he was famous for his dress, he was more famous for his golf game and good character. Payne won three major championships in his shortened golf career. They were the U.S Open twice and the PGA Championship. His most memorable win was the 199 ...more

This was hardly a page-turner, but was interesting for golf fans and those who enjoyed watching Payne Stewart play (like me - the 1999 US Open was the most gripping gold tourney I have ever watched). The writing was not sensational, but it was readable. The strength of the book was the record of the day-to-day activities of PGA golfers and the kind of life they lead.

Good read, I am not a golfer, I do enjoy watching a golf game every now and then, so to read a book about a golfer was going to be a new experience. When I was younger I remember vaguely seeing Payne Stewart on occasion. He was a few years younger than me, but I do remember the fateful day of his passing. The book is a very good read and one that I would recommend reading for anyone who likes to read Biographies and Autobiographies.

Its good.
Dj Wells
A wonderful biography of a man who tragically lost his life in an unbelievable accident. Born in Missouri and a lover of the game of golf from childhood, Payne grew up to realize his goal of competing as a PGA Professional and winning the PGA Championship and US Open in his career. A dedicated Christian husband and father, the story brings a tear to the eye.
Victoria Slotto
Enjoyable read, especially for those who are into golf. My guess would be that others would be bored with some of the details of Payne's important tournaments. Good character development with a balance between strengths and weaknesses, giving a rounded portrait of this PGA pro. Tracey Stewart's ghost writer acquited her story well.
Tim
Very good account of his life and faith journey. I appreciate his witness to this day.
Rhonda
I read this because my uncle was Payne's good friend and there are pics of them in this book. However....his story was inspiring when I was not expecting it to be. Good read.
Tyler
My all-time favorite golfer, and one of my favorite sports figures ever. I Use to wear knickers, argyle socks, and the funny golf hat just to be like him.
Rendier
Not earth shattering, but still an interesting look at the life of a PGA tour golfer.
Travis Blayton
