Product Description

Product Description

When his life came to a sudden and tragic end on October 25, 1999, Payne Stewart was at the top of his game on every level. In June of 1999, he enjoyed the signature triumph of his career and solidified himself as one of the exemplary personalities in his profession with a victory at the U.S. Open and a place on the coveted winning U.S. Ryder Cup team. However satisfying his professional accomplishments were, it was his personal triumphs that made him stand out. Those closest to Stewart said his family and faith were what mattered most to him. At his funeral, his wife Tracey described him as a devoted husband and father and a devout Christian. She said, “After 18 years of marriage, he was still the most beautiful man I had ever seen, because of what he was on the inside.” The only authorized biography of Payne Stewart, this book was a 'New York Times' bestseller for 13 consecutive weeks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 16 May 2000
By "gottliebschaller" - Published on
Payne Stewart was a class act. When he was taken from us, the world lost much more than just another professional golfer.
This book gives a hauntingly picturesque view of Payne's life. It is meticulously accurate, and is a very great book to have on your shelf. You will not regret a read-through of this.
Good-bye Payne, me miss you . . .

the best biography of the year. what a wonderful tribute to the life of payne stewart. this book truly captured the real payne stewart, unlike the other books that have been published by so called friends..if you never had the privilege of knowing payne stewart you will feel as if you did after reading this book. i know this had to be difficult for tracey to write, but what a gift this is to her children and to all of payne's friends, and fans. we all miss him very much. thanks tracey for sharing with all the story of the real payne stewart. a loving husband, a wonderful father, a great friend, and brother in christ. he will never be forgotten

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best biographies of the year! 6 Jun. 2000
By A Customer - Published on
The Payne Stewart biography authored by the late golfer's widow is one of the most moving, inspiring biographies I've read. More than just a sports book, or a book about a celebrity--the life and legacy of Payne Stewart, on and off the course, comes shining through. Each page reinforces the reasons why this story deserved to be told. Tracey Stewart describes her husband with candor and realism, tempering the emotion of her loss with the rock-solid assurance her faith provides that Payne is at peace.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Important Side of the Story 6 Jun. 2000
By A Customer - Published on
I'm amazed that readers (at least those who wrote negative reviews on this web site) would be surprised that Tracey's story about Payne is upbeat and positive. If readers want Larry Guest's National Enquiresque forced muckraking (the same treatment he gave Arnold Palmer, a breach of trust that banished him from insider camps) then they should look elsewhere. This is a wife's tribute to a husband, father, and friend she loved. It's a great book that admirers of Payne will enjoy for its intimacy and candidness.
Thanks to Tracey for mustering the courage to put it down on paper. We all miss Payne very much.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reflection of a Hero 18 July 2000
By Annette Jones - Published on
Undoubtably the best book I've ever read!
Tracy Stewart allows us to take a look at the inside life of Payne. From their first glance across a crowded room when Payne knew he was, "going to marry that girl", to the heartrenching funeral that brought us all closer to God through the life of Payne Stewart, whose death was not in vain.
It's wonderful to see not only the professional side of this fallen hero but look into his family and spiritural life as well.
