The Masters and Me
By Tiger Woods and Lorne Rubenstein
To mark the twentieth anniversary of his historic win at the 1997 Masters, Tiger Woods will for the first time
reflect on the record-setting win both on and off the course.
In 1997, Tiger Woods was already among the most watched and closely examined athletes in history. But it wasn't until the Masters Tournament that Tiger Woods's career would definitively change forever. Tiger Woods, then only 21, won the Masters by a historic 12 shots, which remains the widest margin of victory in the tournament's history, making it arguably among the most seminal events in golf. He was the first African-American/Asian player to win the Masters, and this at the Augusta National Golf Club, perhaps the most exclusive club in the world, and one that had in 1990 admitted its first black member.
Now, twenty years later, Woods will explore his history with the game, the Masters tournament itself, how golf has changed over the last 20 years, and what it was like winning such an event. Woods will also open up about his relationship with father Earl Woods, dispelling previous misconceptions, and will candidly reveal many never-before-heard stories.
Written by one of the game's all-time greats, this book will provide keen insight on the Masters then and now,
as well as on the sport itself.
Tiger Woods has had an unprecedented career since becoming a professional golfer in the late summer of 1996. He has won 105 tournaments, 79 of those on the PGA Tour, including Masters Tournaments, US Opens, British Opens, and PGA Championships.
Lorne Rubenstein has written fourteen books while contributing to magazines around the world.
