New documentary with wife of Payne Stewart premieres online
ESPNW.com is premiering a new documentary featuring the wife of famed golfer Payne Stewart.
'Love & Payne' takes a look at the life of Tracey Stewart, the wife of the late golfer. Stewart died in a plane accident in October 1999 at the age of 42. National Transportation Safety Board investigators determined the plane suffered a loss of cabin pressure. Everyone on board died of hypoxia over Florida. The plane continued flying until it ran out of fuel and crashed into a field near Mina, South Dakota.
"'Love & Payne' is above all, a love story that resonates beyond the tragedy, beyond golf; one that I hope will touch and inspire those who watch the film," said Hannah Storm, the film's director.
The documentary is part of ESPN's Nine for IX series, celebrating the 40th anniversary of Title IX.
