Sportscaster Jim Nantz called Tiger Woods' victory in the 2019 Masters Tournament the completion of one of the greatest comebacks in any sport, all-time. It was certainly that, and veteran golf writer Sampson shows why in this crisp account of both Woods' precipitous fall from greatnessâthe sex scandal in 2009, followed by the series of debilitating injuries (multiple surgeries, including a back fusion in 2017)âand the arduous road back to the Masters, where Woods won his fifth green jacket and fifteenth major championship. The basic facts of Woods' career will be familiar to golf fans, but Sampson brings context and backstory to each step along the way, exploring in the process Woods' obsession with perfecting an already near-perfect golf swing and the possible negative effect on his health of undergoing intensive training with Navy SEALs. But it's the vivid retelling of what happened in Augusta in April 2019 that will have fans reliving the improbable moments of that inspirational final round, which culminated in Woods' triumphant roar after sinking the final putt. A essential bit of golf history and a fine warm-up for Woods' forthcoming memoir, Back. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
