Publisher's Summary

Based on three years of extensive research and reporting, two of today's most acclaimed investigative journalists, Jeff Benedict of Sports Illustrated and 11-time Emmy Award winner Armen Keteyian, deliver the first major biography of Tiger Woods - sweeping in scope and packed with groundbreaking, behind-the-scenes details of the Shakespearean rise and epic fall of an American icon.
In 2009, Tiger Woods was the most famous athlete on the planet, a transcendent star of almost unfathomable fame and fortune living what appeared to be the perfect life - married to a Swedish beauty and the father of two young children. Winner of 14 major golf championships and 79 PGA Tour events, Woods was the first billion-dollar athlete, earning more than $100 million a year in endorsements from the likes of Nike, Gillette, AT&T, and Gatorade.
But it was all a carefully crafted illusion. As it turned out, Woods had been living a double life for years - one that exploded in the aftermath of a Thanksgiving night crash that exposed his serial infidelity and sent his personal and professional life off a cliff. In Tiger Woods, Jeff Benedict and Armen Keteyian, the team behind the recent New York Times best seller The System, dig deep behind the headlines to produce a richly reported answer to the question that has mystified millions of sports fans for nearly a decade: Who is Tiger Woods?
Drawing on more than 400 interviews with people from every corner of Woods' life - friends, family members, teachers, romantic partners, swing coaches, business associates, Tour pros, and members of Woods' inner circle - Benedict and Keteyian construct a captivating psychological profile of an African American child programmed by an attention-grabbing father and the original Tiger Mom to be the "chosen one", to change not just the game of golf but the world as well. But at what cost? Benedict and Keteyian provide the starling answers in a biography destined to make headlines and linger in the minds of listeners for years to come.

narrator is horrible

book is okay, but the narrator butchers pronunciation of countless important names, how can you not double-check pronunciations?
"STEVE" 'Ball'asteros??? Really?? Obviously nothing was done in preparation for narrating this book.

Great story although a bit sloppy.

Where does Tiger Woods rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Probably the best overall background on Woods, his parents and his career. Leaves you wondering how he is so popular despite being a generally unpleasant person lacking in fundamental human decency. Easily the greatest golfer in history although as a person he is hollow at his core.

The narrator is also annoying in that he apparently has zero sports background. He mispronounces more names than I could count. I mean really "Steve" Ballesteros? Authors also get Bob Beamon's long jump record, one of the most hallowed records in sports for decades, incorrect.

What three words best describe Roger Casey’s performance?

Decent. Mispronounced.
