Reading Payne’s Putt – Pinehurst’s Caddies Reveal the Secret (Video)

 

Off the tee, Payne Stewart was in trouble.

Just ask legendary Pinehurst caddie Willie McRae.

Stewart’s drive leaked to the right, leaving him 196 yards to the hole and in the deep rough. McRae, who has looped for U.S. presidents, Michael Jordan and countless others for more than 70 years at Pinehurst No. 2, knew the tee shot could be fatal. (Johnny Miller thought so, too.) Stewart would have to lay up.

We all know what happened from there.

But how did Payne make the putt to win the 1999 U.S. Open?

He knew something no one else can see.

Willie McRae knows it. So does Eddie Mac.

So do all the Pinehurst caddies.
