Published by Sphere on 28th March 2017, RRP $37.99
In 1997, Tiger Woods was already among the most
watched and closely examined athletes in history. But it wasn't until the
Masters Tournament that Tiger Woods's career would definitively change forever.
Tiger Woods, then only 21, won the Masters by a historic 12 shots, which
remains the widest margin of victory in the tournament's history, making it
arguably among the most seminal events in golf. He was the first
African-American/Asian player to win the Masters, and this at the Augusta
National Golf Club, perhaps the most exclusive club in the world.
Now, twenty years later, Woods will explore his
history with the game, the Masters tournament itself, how golf has changed over
the last 20 years, and what it was like winning such an event. Woods will also
discuss his relationship with father Earl Woods, dispelling previous
misconceptions, and will candidly reveal many never-before-heard stories.
Written by one of the game's all-time greats,
this book will provide keen insight on the Masters then and now, as well as on
the sport itself.
TIGER WOODShas had an unprecedented career since becoming
a professional golfer in the late summer of 1996. He has won 105 tournaments,
79 of those on the PGA Tour, including Masters Tournaments, US Opens, British
Opens, and PGA Championships.
