Golf Notes February 9

Stewart honoured by home state statue

A bronze statue of Payne Stewart will be erected at the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame this summer.

The 6-foot-6 inch memorial will be the centrepiece at the end of a lighted walkway to the hall's garden. It will depict the golf great, a Springfield native, in mid-swing.

Stewart, who died in an aviation accident in October, was recognised as a "Missouri Sports Legend" at a ceremony Sunday night, Feb. 6 at the hall. He joins Stan Musial and Len Dawson as the only members of the hall to reach that status.

Stewart was a two-time U.S. Open Champion and five-time U.S. Ryder Cup team member.
