Publisher HarperCollins says Back is first and only account ‘directly from’ US golfer
Fresh from a startling career comeback after years of battling injuries, sex addiction and tabloids, Tiger Woods has announced a new memoir titled Back in which he promises to tell his “definitive story”.
The book, to be published by HarperCollins but for which there is no confirmed release date, will start with Woods’ childhood as a golfing prodigy and span his 81 PGA Tour event wins – the second-highest total of any player – and 15 major victories.
Back will also reportedly detail his battles with “devastating injuries and personal issues”, thought to refer to his history of infidelities and subsequent commitment to sex addiction therapy, and end with Woods’ comeback in April when, at the age of 43, he won the Masters, his first major win in more than a decade.
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. Click here to read more
