US Open: Rickie Fowler remembers Payne Stewart in fitting fashion at Pinehurst
JUN 12, 2014 9:30a ET
Rickie Fowler is somewhat of a style-guru on the course, always wearing bright, perfectly-matching outfits. For the first round of the U.S. Open at Pinehurst, Fowler took his outfit up a notch in honor of golf legend Payne Stewart.
Stewart, who famously wore knickers during his playing career, left his mark at the 1999 U.S. Open when he made "the putt" to beat Phil Mickelson, at Pinehurst of course. To honor Stewart, Fowler is wearing a pair of white knickers for the first round.
Payne was one of my all time favorites...it's going to be fun remembering what he did around this place! #USOpen— Rickie Fowler (@RickieFowlerPGA) June 12, 2014
Fowler calls Stewart one of his "all-time favorites," and he's not alone on that. Stewart was loved by all.
It's a great tribute by Fowler, the first of many great moments we'll have at this week's U.S. Open.
