Based on three years of extensive research and reporting, two of today’s most acclaimed investigative journalists, Jeff Benedict of Sports Illustrated and eleven-time Emmy Award winner Armen Keteyian, are the team behind the first major biography on Tiger Woods. The talk and book signing by Benedict of the instant New York TimesBestseller, TIGER WOODS,will take place on May 31 at the Gunn Memorial Library in Washington.
“Very few individuals are known throughout the world by one word,” write Jeff Benedict and Armen Keteyian. “Tiger reached that exclusive club by being the greatest golfer – some would say the greatest athlete – in modern history. But this story transcends golf, and his influence reached around the globe.” Until now, there has never been a 360-degree comprehensive account of Tiger’s life, one that closely examines his roots and the vital role his parents played in his epic rise, fall and return. Benedict and Keteyian set out to deliver something fresh and revealing, a complete human portrait of a true, albeit reluctant, American idol. Sweeping in scope and packed with groundbreaking behind the scenes details, TIGER WOODSis that portrait.
