Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-Woods's growth as a golfer is told in chronological order from his interest as a toddler to his success as a professional. The athlete's determination, his love for the game, and the importance of his family are obvious as Collins describes the celebrity's development through high school, athletic career at Stanford, and professional triumph. Average-quality, black-and-white sketches of Woods and his family are included. The occasional use of dialogue adds interest and a sense of reality to the text. A brief history of golf is included. This book is livelier than the author's Tiger Woods, Golf Superstar (Pelican, 1999), which is for younger readers.-Janice C.
