Book Description

5 May 1997 Sports Illustrated
Tiger Woods first held a golf club when he was less than a year old. He turned professional in August 1996 at the age of 20, and had two victories out of seven events, plus five consecutive top-five finishes on the PGA tour in two months. This is the story of Tiger Woods, tracing his progress from his beginnings as an increasingly watched and heralded junior golfer, to his first two months on the PGA tour, where he was expected to have to fight to finish in the top 125, but qualified in the top 30. This account features reporting, profiles and commentary.

3.0 out of 5 stars HIS BEGINNING 5 July 2002
By Bonita L. Davis - Published on
Sports Illustrated put together a collection of some of its articles chronicling the rise of Tiger Woods from the years 1992 through 1996. Writers such as James Garrity, Jaime Diaz, Tim Rosafore, Rick Reilly, William Reed, and Gary Sickle share their special insight on this young golf phenomena. Everyone has their say in this three act drama.
Act I is aptly titled The Kid. Here we are given a snapshot of the young Tiger learning his trade while moving up in the ranks of golf history. Act II concerns itself with the young man on the rise as an Amateur. The reporting tracks his comebacks, successes and the never ending question of when he will turn pro. Act III, The Pro, introduces us to a new Tiger. Tiger has moved beyond his peers on the amateur circuit and now has debuted as a professional. How he does and what he will do in the future is yet to come as we read the articles concerning his progress.
This is a good picture book. If you want to start a conversation about Tiger Woods and his rise to golf fame, this is a fair start. The articles aren't all that exciting unless you love to hear the same old jargon and statistics about Tiger, time and time again. The book's photography is good and enjoyable. Sports Illustrated threw together a picture book of a rising star. The magazine could have done better but what you have is decent coffee table reading.
