Whatever you do today, make time to watch this. Brilliant work by ESPN’s Hannah Storm for ESPN’s Nine for IX series.
Love & Payne
“I have known Tracey Stewartsince doing an interview with her shortly after the loss of her husband. At that time, and still today, I was struck by Tracey’s uncommon combination of both strength and support, a wife happy to be in the background of a charismatic, talented man, who would not have achieved his personal or professional success without her. … ‘Love & Payne’ is above all, a love story that resonates beyond the tragedy, beyond golf; one that I hope will touch and inspire those who watch the film.” — Hannah Storm
Rory, at the advice of local Pinehurst caddie Thomas Trinchitella, dropped a ball to try the putt. The first was one short, but the second was a perfect roll. After a less-than-enthusiastic Payne fist-pump, Rory took another swipe and came through with a model Payne Stewart pose.
More coming with Rory later today, including a video with his thoughts of No. 2 in advance of the U.S. Open.
