99 US Open Signs to be Auctioned

Due to a great demand, the state of North Carolina has decided it will auction 50 highway signs remaining from the 1999 U.S. Open held at Pinehurst. The signs will be auctioned off to the highest bidder through the Surplus Property Agency, starting on Jan. 23, and spanning out over nine weeks.
The venue was the site of what many people believe to be one of the greatest U.S. Open Championships in the event's history, certainly the best in recent years. Furthermore, it was the late Payne Stewart who won the event. A most popular champion, Stewart claimed the title with a dramatic birdie on the 72nd hole. Tragically, he passed several months later in a plane accident.
