2019 has been a major comeback for the current Masters champion. The 15-time major winner Tiger Woods announced its partnership with Harper Collins to write a memoir sharing the ‘definitive truth’. He says, I have been always in the limelight and a lot has been written over me but now I would like to tell my story my way.
The book, to be published by HarperCollins has no confirmed release date as of yet, will start with Woods’ childhood as a golfing prodigy and span his 81 PGA Tour event wins.
HarperCollins said the memoir was “the first and only account directly from Woods, with the full cooperation of his friends, family and inner circle”.
Though Woods has put his name to a memoir before, he has never written the books himself, with his 2017 book Unprecedented: The Masters and Me written with the journalist Lorne Rubenstein.
Woods said: “I’ve been in the spotlight for a long time and because of that, there have been books and articles and TV shows about me, most filled with errors, speculative and wrong.
“This book is my definitive story. It’s in my words and expresses my thoughts. It describes how I feel and what’s happened in my life. I’ve been working at it steadily, and I’m looking forward to continuing the process and creating a book that people will want to read.”
