1 - 2 weeks availability
"In Search of Tiger" is a golfing journey that begins in the living room of Tiger Woods' home in California, where he and his parents, Earl and Tilda, revealed a 25-year-old mystery to the author. It concerned a missing soldier named Tiger Phong, with whom Woods Snr had served in Vietnam and after whom Woods Jnr was named. Acclaimed sportswriter Tom Callahan undertook a search through Asia for the missing soldier and unearthed the facts about his life and tragic death. Out of this connection came a certain access to one of the most famous (and famously inaccessible) young men in the world. The book brings the great golfing Meccas of Augusta, Pebble Beach and St Andrews to life and draws further portraits of Royal Lytham and St Annes, Prestwick and Royal County Down. Famous golfing figures such as Jack Nicklaus, Ernie Els, David Duval, Phil Mickelson and Colin Montgomerie also feature prominently. In a stream of famous sporting events, but also in a collection of small, personal moments, the real Tiger Woods is revealed.
Tom Callahan is a columnist at Golf Digest and a long-time observer of all sports for the Washington Post and Time Magazine. He is the author of more than 30 Time cover stories on subjects ranging from Daley Thompson and Larry Bird to Wayne Gretzky and Mike Tyson. He lives in Charlottesville, Virginia.
