Description
In this outspoken and motivational memoir, Earl Woods, the father and mentor of golf superstar Tiger Woods and author of the bestseller Training a Tiger (270,000 hardcover copies sold), shares the inspiring story of the Woods family as well as his views on everything from Tiger's career and the PGA to racism and inner strength.

The Rise of Golfer Tiger Woods is the Most Dramatic sports story of the decade. From child prodigy to three-time U.S. Amateur Champion to record-breaking winner of the 1997 Masters in his first year as a pro, Tiger Woods has achieved more in his 21 years than most athletes will in a lifetime. But he didn't get there on his own. In Playing Through, Tiger's dad relates fascinating stories of Tiger's precocious youth; discusses the crushing difficulties of living in the camera's eye, dealing with fans, and coping with racial tensions; and gives a unique, behind the scenes look at the PGA tour. Part autobiography, part meditation on the care and nurturing of celebrity, and part ultimate insider's biography of Tiger Woods, Playing Through is Earl Woods's reflection on a lifetime of experiences as a father and a teacher in the center of a media firestorm.

With Earl Woods's straight-shooting wisdom and natural flair for storytelling, plus a revealing foreword by Tiger Woods, Playing Through will be one of this season's most requested books, succeeding both as a testament to the powerful emotional bond between father and son and an insightful look at what it takes to make a champion.
