Rickie Fowler paying tribute to Payne Stewart with knickers

Rickie-Fowler-Payne-Stewart-knickers

Rickie Fowler is known for having the most flamboyant style in golf. We wouldn’t be surprised if he wore pastel-colored knickers at the US Open just because he felt like it, but Fowler actually had a reason for his wardrobe choice on Thursday.

Fowler was paying tribute to the late Payne Stewart. In 1999, Stewart won the US Open by sinking a 15-foot par putt on the final hole. He died in a tragic airplane accident months later at the age of 42.

A statue that depicts Stewart celebrating his famous putt was constructed at Pinehurst No. 2, where this year’s US Open is being held.
