Tiger Woods Is Writing a Book

By Dianna Dilworth Comment

Golf legend Tiger Woods is working on a book about the 1997 Masters, Woods’ first major titles.

Canadian golf writer Lorne Rubenstein will co-write the book, which has yet to be titled. The title is slated for release from Grand Central Publishing in March 2017, in advance of the 20th anniversary of Woods’ first Masters title.

“The 1997 Masters was one of the most important tournaments in my life for many reasons,” Woods said in a statement. “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 golf course.”

The news comes several months after Simon & Schuster revealed that journalists Jeff Benedict and Armen Keteyian are writing a biography on Woods, which will chart Woods’ rise to success in golf and business and his decline in recent years since his tabloid divorce.
