Back: Tiger Woods’ first-ever memoir coming to retail

Published

on

Tiger Woods’ memoir, “Back,” will be coming to worldwide retail after HarperCollins Publishers today announced that they had acquired the rights to the book.

“Back” will be the first-ever memoir authored by Tiger Woods, and according to a statement published on the 15-time-major champion’s website, the memoir is “a candid and intimate narrative of an outsize American life.”

The first and only account directly from Woods, with the full cooperation of his friends, family, and inner circle, “Back” covers Woods’ life from his growing up a celebrated golf prodigy through to his stunning 2019 Masters victory.

Speaking on the upcoming release of his memoir, Woods stated

 “I’ve been in the spotlight for a long time, and because of that, there have been books and articles and TV shows about me, most filled with errors, speculative and wrong. This book is my definitive story. 

“It’s in my words and expresses my thoughts. It describes how I feel and what’s happened in my life. I’ve been working at it steadily, and I’m looking forward to continuing the process and creating a book that people will want to read.”

President and Publisher of HarperOne Group, Judith Curr, had this to say on acquiring the publishing rights to “Back”

“We are thrilled and proud to work with Tiger on what I believe will be the publishing event of the decade. Tiger will reclaim his own story and legacy and it’s a story for the world over.”

    This is just a cash grab for Tiger and the publisher. He’s not going to reveal anything shocking, it will be stories we’ve all heard before.

    Here we go. Historical revisionism. Must erase the serial philanderer narrative from people’s minds.

      Again with bringing up his infidelity. Is that all you clowns can do? It seems like all Tiger haters are one trick ponies. Get over yourself.

    50 pages allocated to golf. 50 pages to family. 250 pages to philandering.

      You’re probably the type that doesn’t need any help regarding philandering so I understand why your disinterested in the book.

    Considering he’s the most high profile player of all time and very private I expect this to be a dud

Tiger Woods reveals his at home putting practice routine

Published

on

In Episode 8 of GolfTV’s and Golf Digest’s mini-series “At home with Tiger Woods”, the 15-time major champion explained his primary putting practice routines when at home in South Florida.

Explaining to GolfTV’s Henni Koyack, Woods revealed how he consistently focuses on his putting from 6 feet and in before going straight into a heavy workload of lag putting.

“I end up doing a few sets of chalk lines from probably about 6 feet and in. I work on my start line (and) I try and get that dialed in. And then I really don’t spend a whole lot of time in the 8-15 foot range.

Once I get a lot of my dialed-in time on my putting, then I’ll lag putt a lot and start trying to get my feel in my fingers and how I like to release the putter and feel it in my stroke. I like to do designated tee drill, line drill and then lag putt to death.”

Woods also explained to viewers that he likes to keep his home green running at a “baseline” of 13 on the stimpmeter, which he finds easiest to then make adjustments from at tournament events.

“So, here I like to keep the greens running about 13. And then we go to certain tournaments, and they’re faster. Ok, I make the adjustments. At certain tournaments, they’re slower. But, I use a baseline right around 13. 

At golf courses, the greens have gotten so much faster over the years. Like the standard, it used to be like 10. Maybe 10.5 was a really fast green. But now, some greens are getting up to 14 or so. So, I like to keep mine on the faster side.”
