Born to a father who described him as the Â“chosen oneâ€ť and a mother who called him the Â“universal child,â€ť Tiger Woods was groomed for the fame and influence that his parents believed was his destiny. At age twenty, he made his debut in a Nike commercial. Â“Hello, world,â€ť he said. Â“Are you ready for me?â€ť The world was ready. For the next thirteen years, Tiger nearly lived up to his parentsâ€™ outsized expectations. He conquered the world of golf, settled down with a beautiful Swedish model, and started a family. His net worth approached one billion dollars. Everything was going according to planÂ—until the scandal hit. Steve Helling has long covered Tiger Woodsâ€™s career, and here he draws on intimate sourcesÂ— many speaking out for the first timeÂ—to create a never-before-seen portrait of the golfer.
