• The book will be written with journalist Lorne Rubenstein
• "This is a chance to detail what happened on and off course"
While his timetable for a golfing return is still unclear, Tiger Woods has announced he will be releasing a book.
Written with journalist Lorne Rubenstein, the book will take a detailed look at the 40-year-old’s maiden major triumph at the 1997 Masters and will be released next March – 20 years on from his sensational 12-shot victory at Augusta National.
Tiger Woods will recount, in his own words, his experience of winning his first major and becoming the youngest Masters champion in history, a victory he has called ‘career defining’. It will also explore Woods' history with the game, the tournament itself, how golf has changed over the last 20 years and what it was like winning.
“The 1997 Masters was one of the most important tournaments in my life for many reasons,” said Tiger Woods. “I think about the hug with my dad and all the events that went on that week. A lot of people know generally about that tournament, but this gives me a chance to tell in detail what happened on and off the course.”
Woods will open up about his relationship with father Earl Woods in the book, while also ‘dispelling previous misconceptions’ and reveal many more stories that have never been told before.
Arnie to publish memoirs
Meanwhile, Arnold Palmer is set to publish his memoirs this autumn.
Titled ‘A Life Well Played: My Stories’, Palmer's book promises to give ‘a treasure trove of entertaining anecdotes and timeless wisdom that readers will celebrate and cherish’.
“Though I have written a number of books in the past, this one was particularly important to me, because, as I delved into the process, I realised just how much I still wanted to say to my friends in golf and to fans of the game in general,” he said. “Going through the exercise of getting it all down has been personally satisfying, but I couldn’t have done it without a dedicated group of individuals who truly believed in this project.”
The book will be released on October 25.
