Should be an interesting read. Seems like they did many interviews with old friend-turned-enemy types.

Didn't read the article, but from my observations Tiger's demeanor and attitude has improved, more relaxed and not abrasive during interviews. His golf is no doubt, remarkable, I would never believed he could return and play this well. I was certainly one who had disbelief about a comeback, now I watching it.

Just think, before I was able to see unbelievable golf, now I'm seeing an unbelievable comeback, does it get any better than this in golf?  And to top it off, Phil's playing well too!

Hopefully without murdering ex-wife. Supposedly they get along pretty good with each other these days based on quotes from both of them.

He's only 42. A bit early for a biography I would think. What's the next 42 years? A footnote?

He's lived a pretty monotonous life, definitely nothing worth reading about in his 42 years thus far.

Sounds like the author is just another leech trying to make a buck off of Tiger.  Looking at the title's of other books he wrote, I'm surprised he isn't writing articles for the National Enquirer.

I hope this thread gets locked soon so this slanderous piece of garbage ďbiographyĒ gets less attention. At least Hankís book was mainly about Tigerís greatness and a first hand account.

How could anyone write anything negative about Tiger Woods?  Devoted family man, great tipper, gave fascinatingly open interviews, and his on-course behavior was above reproach.  Fake news!  Sad!

I get more from listening to Notah Begay talk about Tiger - like his backyard greens with varous types of rough and bunkers.

Solid story about a guy making strides in the right direction, read it instead of a book about a guy’s mistakes.

It will sell.

Hard to believe it’s been 10 years since the scandal.

I’ve got a problem with people re-living things so many years later....the stories tend to get better with time.  

Other than his DUI - Tiger has been living a pretty careful life for the past decade. So there is little chance something recent pops up.  This looks like a rehash of TW from mid 90s - 2008.

But it will still sell.

No, but this isn't a comforting article - http://www.golf.com/...s-new-book-says


Even if he did......

1) The PGA Tour deserves some blame for their behind-the-times drug testing policies

2) He sure as hell wasn't the only one doing it

3) How effective could they really be if he hasn't been consistently healthy in years? After all, PEDs are supposed to help athletes recover from injuries

4) It's possible we never would have known about it, as the PGA Tour could just "encourage" Mr. Woods to take an oddly-timed "break"

Keep in mind that this new book is written by two very credible reporters, so we can't dismiss this book as a hit piece.

Yeah, and keep in mind that people can change as they get older. From what we've heard recently he has a good relationship with his ex-wife and kids, and seems to actually be acknowledging the fans on the golf course, which he didn't do much of in the past.

Youíre right. Letís continue to write several million books and articles about it. Letís also continue to support paparazzi making money off stalking Tiger and taking pictures of his children.

Or we could stop re-hashing this manís bad life moments, particularly continually bringing up his dead dadís indiscretions. I hate that some nobody can make money by taking advantage of a famous personís name, and further more, attempting to trash his name.

Yep.  Your perspective changes as you age and mature.  It will be interesting to see how many pages are dedicated to the last two years....or will it all be scandal?

No, and this book won't find one, it will just be amateur hour rehash - but they throw it in there to sell books.
