The impossible life of Tiger Woods—how did he become the GOAT, and what drove him to fall so spectacularly? In Patterson’s hands, Tiger’s story is a hole-in-one thriller.

Filled with brand-new interviews, Tiger Woods is the first nonfiction collaboration between James Patterson and golf reporter Peter de Jonge, co-authors of the New York Times bestselling “Miracle” golf novels. 
Tiger Woods is unrivaled as an athlete. He made the ultimate commitment to his chosen sport—and transformed it. Before the age of twenty-five, he rose to phenomenon status: twice named "Sportsman of the Year" by Sports Illustrated; won more than thirty professional tournaments; and became the youngest player to win pro golf’s four Grand Slam tournaments. 
How did Woods do it? On watching the ball, Woods says, "I practice putting with my left eye closed, so I can't see the target line at all with my peripheral vision. That makes it easier to keep my eyes looking straight down."  
Patterson and de Jonge tap into the transformative moments of Woods’s life, revealing in vivid, dramatic scenes what Woods saw and felt on the course and in his inner life—from his only "perfect" shot (a 3-wood on No. 14 at St. Andrews) to his missed first putt at the 1995 Masters through his recent comeback tours.
