Payne Stewart Signed 1999 US Open at Pinehurst No. 2 Yellow Screen Flag BECKETT #AA13713


Offered here is a seldom seen 1999 U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2 flag, signed by the late Payne Stewart. The Fathers Day final round dual between Phil Mickelson and Payne Stewart featured one of the most memorable closes to a U.S. Open in history. Stewart closed the 1999 U.S. Open out with a 15-foot par putt that dropped on the 18th hole to give him a one stroke win over Mickelson. He embraced Phil, who was looking for his first major and also the birth of his first child the next day, consoling him on the loss and raising his spirits with the famous line, "you are going to make a great father." This was as good as you can could get in the close to a Father's Day U.S. Open. The win marked Stewart's second U.S. Open triumph (1991) and third Major victory (1989 PGA). The Open win at Pinehurst No. 2 in '99 also verified in the media and fan's minds alike that Stewart's career was Hall of Fame worthy. Tragically we also know that Payne had a very short window to sign this flag from his victory at Pinehurst (June 20,1999) to the day of his airplane accident (October 25,1999). A scant 126 days between. Somewhere in that time period Payne Stewart took this yellow flag in his hand, from his win at the 1999 Open, and placed his autograph nicely in black Sharpie on the front side. One of the very few he signed, another one for reference purposes, sold in our 2021 April Auction for the sum of $4,574 on 21 bids. James Spence Authentication (JSA) has reviewed this signature and their auction letter of authenticity comes with this lot.
