Description
From his appearance on the Mike Douglas Show at age three (he putted for Bob Hope and Jimmy Stewart) to his winning the U.S Junior Amateur title at fifteen (he was the youngest champion ever) to his recent victories in four Grand Slam events in a row (though not in the same year), Tiger Woods has pursued with single-minded determination his dream of becoming the greatest golfer in history. But who is the real Tiger Woods? From his Nike commercials to his conflicting statements on race, Tiger has stirred up plenty of controversy off the golf course. And now in Chasing Tiger—an up-to-date collection of profiles, commentary, and reporting on Tiger's career by both U.S. and British writers from the late 1980s to now –we chart the trajectory of "the chosen one" from young prodigy to the most popular athlete in the world. With stellar profiles by esteemed sports writers such as Gary Smith and Charles Pierce, reportage by Pulitzer Prize–winning sportswriters Tom Boswell and the late Jim Murray, and pithy commentary by Ellen Goodman, Maureen Dowd, and Frank Deford, Chasing Tiger is a multi-dimensional portrait of the making of a legend.
