Payne Stewart At The Ryder Cup – 1993 The Belfry

In the 1993 Ryder Cup at The Belfry, Payne Stewart went 3-1-0 to help the United States team to its second straight win. The European team had won the previous three Ryder Cup matches.

In all, Stewart played on five Ryder Cup teams (1987, 1989, 1991, 1993, and 1999). The US team went 3-1-1 when he was a player.

Like Jack Nicklaus, one of Stewart’s most memorable Ryder Cup moments was a concession. In 1999 at Brookline, Stewart too offense at the heckling Colin Montgomerie endured. With a US victory assured, Stewart conceded a putt (and his own singles match) to Colin Montgomerie on the 18th hole. “This game is about sportsmanship,” Stewart said afterward
