Beschreibung:

The definitive chronicle of the most stunning year in the legendary career of Tiger Woods, when the worlds greatest golfer returned to competitive play following major knee surgeryonly to have his personal life unravel in the public spotlight at years end. Who is the real Tiger Woods? The unbeatable, indomitable, and ultimate competitor? The husband and father who cares more about his family than anything else? Or the supremely confident controller who thought fierce management of his image and those around him would allow him to lead a double life? In Unplayable, veteran journalist Robert Lusetich offers an in-depth look at the worlds most recognizable yet least known athlete, Tiger Woods. Lusetich, who first interviewed Woods in the late 1990s and has written about him since 1996, was the only writer to cover every PGA Tour event the worlds number one golfer played in 2009. Unplayable tells of the unfolding of Tigers most pivotal season on the golf course with his first ever hiatuses from professional playand provides extensive reporting and the backstory to show who the most elusive man in all of sports really is. Lusetich peels away the layers of the Woods persona to create a portrait that is neither unsympathetic nor hesitant to shed light on Tigers shortcomings. This rich, insightful account reveals: what actually makes Woods the games dominant player; how his upbringing influenced who he is today and how he has changed over time; and the nature of his relationships with his family, former and current friends, celebrity athletes, peers, coaches, sports agents, sponsors, and the media and public itself. Based on one-of-a-kind access, Unplayable is a gripping look at the man who changed golf and inspired more fans around the world than anyone else in the history of the sport.
