Each of the last eight years, Steve Payne has made the trek from Mesa, Ariz., to Fort Worth to bond with his son, Chance, and volunteer at Colonial. This year, father and son will be tracking tee shots with Shot Link on the first leg of the Horrible Horseshoe.

​​​​​​​On Wednesday, Major Payne (Steve’s a former police captain) was walking the course with his wife, Anne, who has been his life caddy for 47 years. Both Steve and Anne snagged Jordan Spieth’s autograph early in the day and Anne managed to get signatures on her Hat of Champions from Justin Rose, Kevin Na, Jason Kokrak, and Daniel Berger.
