Tiger: the real story

Book Cover
Average Rating
Da Capo Press/Perseus Books Group,
Pub. Date:
Born to a father who described him as the "chosen one" and a mother who called him the "universal child," Tiger Woods was groomed for the fame and influence that his parents believed was his destiny. At age twenty, he made his debut in a Nike commercial. "Hello, world," he said. "Are you ready for me?"

The world was ready.

For the next thirteen years, Tiger nearly lived up to his parents' outsized expectations. He conquered the world of golf, settled down with a beautiful Swedish model, and started a family. His net worth approached one billion dollars. Everything was going according to plan--until the scandal hit.

Steve Helling has long covered Tiger Woods's career, and here he draws on intimate sources-- many speaking out for the first time--to create a never-before-seen portrait of the golfer.

display_descriptionAt twenty, Tiger Woods made his debut in a Nike commercial. "Hello, World," he said. "Are you ready for me?" The world was ready. His handlers kept a tight rein on the private superstar, carefully controlling his media coverage. Although everyone recognizes Tiger Woods, his true character has remained a mystery. Tiger: The Real Story is the riveting story of this gifted athlete who tasted unprecedented success and fame. Using his storied golf career as a backdrop, it examines how the people closest to Tiger-an ambitious father, an ambivalent mother, and a starstruck wife-have shaped him into a complex and conflicted man. Central to the story is Tiger himself: how media hype and a sudden fall from grace have nearly destroyed his personal and professional lifeā€¦and where he goes from here.
