One publicly imploded marriage. Two car accidents. Eight surgeries. And now, a miracle of hard work and storied talent: five Masters wins. Once hailed as "the greatest closer in history" before he fell further than any beloved athlete in America's memory, Tiger swung at the world's wildest expectations and beat the skeptics with his April 2019 championship.

Golf is not a sport I watch much of. Admittedly, I only tune in for the final round of major tournaments; otherwise, I find watching a round of eighteen holes the perfect excuse for a nap. Yet, I can remember the 1997 Masters tournament like it was yesterday. I was in twelfth grade and the year was thankfully almost over. Our team, the Chicago Bulls, was about to start another championship playoff run. And then this young man just a little older than ourselves goes out and wallops the ...more

It isn’t too big a stretch to consider the victory by Tiger Woods at the 2019 Masters tournament to be considered the greatest comeback in the history of sports – any sport. While that claim can be debated, no one will consider that comeback by a man whose many physical issues and personal problems were put on public display as one of the best stories of recent years. Long time golf writer Curt Sampson tells the story of Woods’ epic win and something that is hard for any golf journalist to ...more

This was an exquisite entry into the unknown world behind the scenes and out on the course.
The problem I had is I'm a mom of three who only plays miniature golf for fun not a golf pro so I was lost at time with all the stats, the expert knowledge of the game, and or the end results.
In all honesty the reason I read this was for the stardom factor and the title Roaring Back.
With the latter being focused on the come back kid and how he overcame so many obstacles not just personally but

Roaring Back
Curt Sampson written about Tiger Woods at various junctures Tiger’s career.
This is an even handed look at the resurgent Tiger. The first part of the book takes us through Tiger’s issues requiring a comeback and the effort Tiger put into the effort.
The remainder of the book is spent mostly chronicling the 2019 Masters day by day with all the ups and downs amongst the leaders.
A great read for golf enthusiasts and interesting for students of human nature.
Thanks to Netgalley for the

Curt Sampson, golf professional turned golf writer, came to golf the old-fashioned way—as a caddie. He looped for his father for a few years on summer Saturday’s, then turned pro, in a manner of speaking, at age 12, as one of the scores of disheveled boys and men in the caddie pen at Lake Forest Country Club in Hudson, Ohio. His golf game developed from sneaking on LFCC at twilight, an ...more
