Payne Stewart always wanted to stand out. That’s why he sported the throwback knickers, the tam o’shanter – the sartorial symbol of an athlete who loved being the center of attention. Stewart was a funny, entertaining, charismatic and talented golfer with one of the most beautiful and stylish swings in the game. He fell in love – literally at first sight, with his wife of 18 years, Tracey Ferguson, who was to become the strong, centering influence he needed.
Brainstormin’ Productions tells this story in Tracey’s first on-camera interview in many years. Hannah Storm, who conducted the first network interview with Tracey following the tragedy in 1999, directs the film, sitting down with Tracey 14 years later – before the 2014 U.S. Open at Pinehurst. Tracey tells the story from their first fateful meeting, to Payne’s transformative years, to his tragic death, and ultimately his legacy as a father, champion and husband. It’s a personal, poignant, rare look at Payne Stewart and the powerful connection behind his success as a golfer and a man.
