Golf legend Tiger Woods will be the subject of a new biography from Simon & Schuster. The book has yet to be titled or given a release date.
Journalists Jeff Benedict and Armen Keteyian are writing the book. Jonathan Karp, president and publisher of Simon & Schuster, and Jofie Ferrari-Adler, senior editor at Simon & Schuster acquired world, audio, and first serial rights to the project from literary agent Richard Pine of Inkwell Management.
The authors have spent the last year doing research and interviews for the book. The book will chart Woods’ rise to success in golf and business and his decline in recent years since his tabloid divorce.
“Our approach has been to gather and digest everything we possibly can,” stated Keteyian. “We’re also talking to a lot of people that haven’t talked previously. It’s clearly been a complicated, unmatched, and well-chronicled, rise, fall, and return. But there’s more. A lot more. And I believe the end result will captivate sports fans and fans of big, sweeping biographies.”
