Payne Stewart Statue, 18th Hole Pinehurst #2

I was in Pinehurst for a wedding not too long ago and squeezed in a round before all the good times started.  I did not get to play Pinehurst #2 but before leaving the grounds, I made sure I saw the Payne Stewart statue that sits just off the 18th hole.  I was there in ’99 for the US. OPEN for every round and watched closely as Payne closed the tournament with a miraculous 20 ft putt for par.  The statue captures his famous pose after the putt dropped, it gave me chills just looking at it.  The detail, the expression on the face is as realistic as it gets.  If you are in Pinehurst, come by and see for yourself.
