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.
