Overview

Tiger Woods is not only the world's most recognized athlete, but its leading exemplar of excellence. His breathtaking athleticism, superb technique, grace under pressure, and the sheer scope of his ever-expanding record have combined to make him — at age 33 — widely regarded as the greatest golfer to ever play the game. Like other physical geniuses, his very movement commands our attention.

But despite the millions of words and images put forth in the pursuit of Tiger, Woods remains a largely mysterious figure. In spite of his exalted acts on the golf course and ubiquitous presence as an endorser, he gives very little of himself away. Naturally, his enigmatic nature has only increased our fascination.

Meet the Author

It takes a penetrating and discerning eye to see into and illuminate such a willfully obscured window, but it's precisely that quality that has been the hallmark of Jules Alexander's photographs for more than 60 years. He first began capturing the essence of the charismatic by shooting intimate portraits of musicians like Duke Ellington and Frank Sinatra as they performed in Smoky Manhattan night clubs in the early 1940s. After a tour as a Navy aerial reconnaissance photographer in World War II, Alexander became a top fashion and advertising photographer. But his finest and most well-know work was self assigned — his close study of the great Ben Hogan during practice and competitive rounds at the 1959 U.S. Open at Winged Foot.

Although only a casual golfer at the time, Alexander was fascinated by Hogan as a classic figure of intensity, mastery, and character. The black and white images he crafted from a magical week provide the clearest view ever of this most private and complex of men. In 1994, Alexander's work was lovingly presented in The Hogan Mystique, which is now acknowledged as the finest photographic profile of a golfer in the history of the game.

Alexander, whose golf portraits and landscapes are on permanent display in the World Golf Hall of Fame, is equally proud of his portraits of Woods, also done in black and white. Unlike his work with Hogan, Alexander has been able to select from his favorite pieces produced over ten years, beginning with Woods' rookie year as a professional. Amazingly, the two men have never met, but after being mesmerized by this book, a reader will feel closer than ever to knowing a supreme figure with a mystique every bit as compelling as Ben Hogan's.
