Son of Payne Stewart now tournament director on LPGA

Aaron Stewart was always around golf even when he wasn't heavily invested. Now he's involved in ways he never imagined.

Stewart, the son of late three-time major champion Payne Stewart, has been appointed tournament director of the Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions in Orlando, Florida. The season opener on the LPGA Tour is Jan. 16-19 and features two events in one - 72 holes of stroke play for LPGA winners the last two seasons and celebrities competing in a Stableford format.

''I'm really excited to be with the tournament side of things, back in the golf industry,'' Stewart said.
