The Masters, the U.S. Open, the British Open, the PGA Championship.

The Career Grand Slam.

At age 24.

He could very well be the greatest golfer to ever play the game.

Raising the Bar is the story of how Tiger Woods changed his life, his game, and the way America views golf. There have been many biographies written about Tiger’s life and early days with the PGA, but each ends with his triumphant victory in the 1997 Masters Championship. In the last few years Tiger has endured a lifetime of experiences, including his growing pains, his perceived slump in 1998, his incredible winning streak from 1999--2000, culminating in his career grand slam. Critically acclaimed golf writer and commentator Tim Rosaforte has watched Tiger since he burst onto the golfing scene and been an up-close observer of the Tiger’s life both on and off the course. Totally revised and updated, Raising the Bar includes Tiger’s latest victories—including his historic 2001 Masters victory that completed the Tiger slam—and provides intense insight into his amazing career.

    Opportunity missed!

    I had hoped to read an in-depth book on Tiger Woods and his amazing success. Unfortunately, this effort is superficial and is essentially a long tribute. Woods deserves the tributes, but this book could have been much more with greater detail and analysis. Also, there are too many typos which seem to show signs of being put together hastily. This is not a bad book; it's just not all it could have been.

    Best golf book in years!

    If you're a Tiger fan or a Tim Rosaforte fan or simply a golf fan, you will not be dissapointed with Raising the Bar. As a fan of all 3, I was thrilled with the way Rosaforte took us from the 'slump' to the career grand slam and everything in between. There are very few books that you don't want to end. This is one of them. There are great Tiger anecdotes and even a nice little foreward from Byron Nelson. Just as we should all take in every Tiger moment, for unfortunately, he too will slow (well maybe not) like Jordan and Gretzky, we should also take in this terrific book about the 2 years in which Tiger Woods became everything he was supposed to become....and more.

    The Ultimate Tiger Book

    Tim Rosaforte has carefully chronicled Tiger's amazing 2000 season. He gives readers a view of 'backstage' in the Woods camp. He details the key points in Tiger Woods' season and his preparation for the Majors. He provides unique insights into the superstar. Easy read, great new info about Tiger and shows we will see more greatness from him. Tiger's work ethic is on display in each chapter and fans will be amazed. Rosaforte has a homerun on his hands!

    The best is here!

    Accolades to the author!. He has never disappointed me with his writings but this tops all the others. Tim Rosaforte writes with insight, sincerity and a sense of humor and turns what could possibly have been a somewhat dull chronicle of successes into a thoroughly enjoyable and heartwarming story. I'm a major Tiger Woods fan, but whether they are or not, everyone should enjoy this book.
