Chasing Tiger by Curt Sampson

Book Description

Tiger Woods has changed golf - forever. His combination of power, skill, and media smarts has made him the biggest sports figure since Michael Jordan and, if his career was to end tomorrow, he'd go down as one of the top five players of all time. What he's left in his wake, however, is a game struggling to keep up. Great players, such as Phil Mickelson and David Duval, are left wallowing behind Woods, and it's going to take prodigious feats of golfing skill to catch up with him. Renowned golf journalist Curt Sampson has done for golf what John Feinstein did for basketball in A SEASON ON THE BRINK, namely, write an inside, revealing narrative of a year in the PGA Tour - the Sprint, NEC, National Car Rental Classic, and the Majors - every locale where Tiger Woods has played. Sampson assesses the performaces of the players who have spent the year chasing Tiger, and measures how each of them has changed as a result of the increased competition. He also charts the progress of players like Charles Howell III, a young man tipped by Nicklaus to be the next Tiger.
