Tiger is twenty years old when the book opens and twenty-seven when it closes. During those years, Callahan covered Woods at all the Majors, including the Masters, the U.S. Open, and the British Open, culminating in Tiger's heart-stopping race to make history by clinching the string of Majors affectionately nicknamed the Tiger Slam. As the pulse of golf was measured by the curve of his swing, Tiger made everyone's heart skip a beat as he attempted to win the Grand Slam a year later.
Along the way, Tom Callahan hears from everyone who is anyone in the world of Tiger Woods, including Phil Mickelson, Jack Nicklaus, David Duval, Butch Harmon, Ernie Els, and, of course, Tiger's rather ubiquitous mother and father. As much as we learn about Tiger--how he sees himself in relation to the courses he plays on and the players he has learned from and competed with--we also enjoy a bird's-eye view of golf as it is now with Tiger on the scene, and as it was for
In Search of Tiger catalogs and dissects moments and influences in Tiger's guarded life and unprecedented career--moments that unveil him, his awesome drive, and his enormous talent. Tom Callahan has written a classic of its kind, a book to rank with the best in its genre. He has done what few have even attempted--
he has found the real Tiger Woods.
