Follow the Roar
Tailing Tiger for All 604 Holes of His Most Spectacular SeasoneBook - 2008
With his career at a standstill and his golf game a mere shadow of its former mediocrity, TV writer and ESPN.com contributor Bob Smiley decided the time had come to turn to the one person who might be able to help: Tiger Woods. So, in January 2008, Smiley set out to follow the game's greatest player from the gallery for every hole of an entire season. Smiley tailed Tiger from the seaside cliffs of San Diego to the deserts of Dubai, through the hallowed gates of Augusta National, and on to arguably the greatest U.S. Open of all time, at Torrey Pines—where, in a legendary duel with charismatic journeyman Rocco Mediate, Woods won his fourteenth major . . . on one leg.
Told from the perspective of a true golf fan, Follow the Roar is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure through the most spectacular and inspiring season in Tiger Woods' celebrated career.
