Overview

Through determination and hard work, Tiger Woods has combated racism, excelled in school, and golfed his way into the history books.

Tiger is a role model because of his dedication and focus, both on the golf course and in the classroom. Following Tiger's example means setting priorities, learning the importance of family, and giving back to the community.

By reading the exciting exploits of a four-year-old tournament player who grew up to be the youngest golfer ever to win the prestigious Masters Tournament, you will learn that you, too, can achieve your dreams. But Tiger's life also demonstrates that some things, such as self-discipline and courage in the face of adversity, are more important than winning.

In addition to learning from Tiger's example, you can decipher golf's unique vocabulary using the handy glossary, which makes Tiger Woods, Golfing Champion an educational and entertaining read.

David R. Collins is the author of more than seventy books, including Tiger Woods, Golf Superstar, a book for younger children. Of that book, School Library Journal wrote, "Even libraries that already have material on Tiger Woods should find space for this one." Other books by Collins that occupy space on library shelves are Hero on Horseback: The Story of Casimir Pulaski, and Casimir Pulaski: Soldier on Horseback. All are published by Pelican.

Larry Nolte has created "expressive full-color illustrations" for many of David Collins' books, including all those published by Pelican.

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.
