Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Bruce Adelson
Since winning the 1997 Masters Golf Tournament, Tiger Woods has become a fixture on the professional sports scene, a high profile also aided by his $60 million endorsement contracts. Woods's triumph went beyond athletics as he became the first African-American to win the Masters which is played at an Augusta, Georgia country club that formerly discriminated against minorities. This basic biography relates Woods' accomplishments and history in impressive detail. He got started in golf as a toddler, when he carried a golf club wherever he went. The young phenom appeared on the Mike Douglas television show, sporting a golf club taller than he was and batting golf balls into a net to the delight of the audience. Eventually, Woods advanced through the amateur ranks, winning 30 tournaments before he was 11 years old. He won several amateur and NCAA championships before turning professional in 1996 at the age of 21. Although many golf terms, such as stroke and wedge, are explained in the book, it would have been helpful to provide explanations for bogey, eagle, and par, household words to golf fans that may nevertheless be unfamiliar to young readers.
School Library Journal
Gr 4-7Woods's rise to the elite in the world of golf is described in five short chapters. Savage begins this lively account by describing his subject's experiences at the Masters and then backtracks to his successes and challenges in his rise to stardom. The athlete's personality, strong family ties, and determination emerge through his single-minded focus on being a world-class golfer. Good-quality, full-color photos appear throughout. Some knowledge of the game is helpful, but many terms are defined within the text and others, printed in bold letters, appear in a short glossary. Where opinion is given, the author documents his view with quotes from others. The lively style of writing combined with the color photographs give this biography an appealing edge over Allison Teague's Prince of the Fairway (Avisson, 1997), Aaron Boyd's Tiger Woods (Morgan Reynolds, 1997), and S. A. Kramer's longer Tiger Woods (Random, 1998).Janice C. Hayes, Middle Tennessee State University, Murfreeboro
