At 20, 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 has 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 life…and where he goes from here.
