Tiger Woods has won some 71 PGA tournaments, second only to Sam Snead and Jack Nicklaus, and is second only to Nicklaus in the numbers of major championship won (14). The PGA Tour has named him Player of the Year ten times and he is the career money list leader.
Tiger Woods: A Biography, second Edition updates the 2008 edition to examine the life and career of this phenomenal athlete through the 2009 PGA Championship and the recent scandal in which he was involved. The book provides information about Woods's parents and his upbringing, early life, and outstanding accomplishments as a professional golfer. It also covers Tiger's philanthropic activities including the Tiger Woods Foundation, a global organization that provides innovative educational opportunities to youth; the Tiger Woods Learning Center; and the Earl Woods Scholarship Program established to honor the spirit and vision of Tiger's father.
Recognizing that the opportunities Woods has had were hard won by early African American golfers-who were denied the right to play on the PGA Tour until 1961-the book also includes a chapter on these pioneers. The volume is rounded out with a brief history of broadcasting and spots, as well as look at the relationship between athletes and sponsors.
