PHOTO: Rickie Fowler dresses like Payne Stewart for 2014 US Open
A touching tribute by Rickie Fowler to one of his favorite players.
Well, we have our coolest moment of the week so far. Rickie Fowler decided to sport some knickers for the first round of the 2014 US Open in honor of Payne Stewart.
That is just tremendous. Fowler tweeted about the decision early on Thusday morning.
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
"This week you can't help but think about Payne Stewart and his win at the '99 US Open," said Fowler. "I thought wearing the knickers, a look he was so famous for, would be a nice way to honor and remember such a huge golf icon, and someone I've always admired and looked up to.
"He had such an impact on the game both on and off the course; always gracious, win or lose. We will all be thinking about him this week."
I don't even know what to say about it. I'm just going to leave the photos here for your viewing pleasure.
