Yes, this has been online for a while. Still, that doesn’t mean we can’t take a moment to hail Michael David Murphy as a genius and great contributor to the game of golf (and Pinehurst).
Below is Murphy’s supercut, which includes EVERY STROKE MADE (AND AIRED) BY PAYNE STEWART DURING THE FINAL ROUND OF THE 1999 U.S. OPEN.
Everything about this is a triumph. Listen to the rhythm of the shots as they are struck throughout. Note the pre-restored Pinehurst No. 2. Marvel at the beautiful golf swing. Remember just how long and perilous the par-saving putt on 16 was.
And then the finish.
