| Summary

At 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 life... and where he goes from here.
