Tiger Woods The Makings Of A Champion Tim Rosaforte, who is a senior writer for Sports Illustrated, writes this book, which is 240 pages and is based on Tiger Woods development from toddler to PGA Champion. Tim has known Tiger since 1990 where he witnessed Tiger at age 10 winning a National Tournament in Florida. Tim shows his knowledge in the game of golf by telling us the reader about Tiger’s tournaments and quotes from Tiger and his father Earl about his play. Tim has also written another book called Heartbreak Hill, which is also based on golf that I have not read yet. I think Tim showed his good writing abilities in this book and it showed because it almost seemed like you were right there with him watching this amazing young golfer which has progressed to the best golfer in the world.
This book is 45 chapters and the 45 chapters range from Tiger being strapped into a highchair at age 1 and watching his dad pound balls into a net to winning the PGA Championship. The Tiger Woods story is something else. Tiger watched his dad pound balls into a net at age 1 and at age 3 was swinging the golf club like he was a pro. At age 5 he was hitting a three with a fade or draw to perfection. It was truly something.
He was featured on talk shows and putted for the crowds at age 3 and beat some of the professionals in a putting contest. Tiger kept a goal chart on his wall and he was telling everyone he wanted to be the best player ever to play the game. Tiger just kept on progressing through High School and played in the summers on the National Junior Golf Tournament. He traveled all over the US to play in tournaments. Which in most cases won the majority of them.

Then he had a decision to make on college. He was also very talented in the classroom as well. Schoolwork came first before golf to Tiger and he was a 3. 8 student.
Then he had a choice to make on college. Was it Stanford or UNLV? Tiger had a tough decision but chose Stanford because that is where his heart and mind told him to go. In the long run this was probably one of the best decisions Tiger has made in his lifetime. Stanford is not only a great college for Academics but golf as well.
He led his team to National Championships, which they won most of the time. He also made a big name for himself in college. He went on to win the US Amateur Championship not once but three times. That had never been done before. The book goes on into his qualifying for the PGA in 1996 and some tournaments he played and then is done. All in all I thought this was a well-written book by a knowledgeable author in Tim Rosaforte.
He had me interested in the book from the get go which I think is important to us the readers because if they don’t write in descriptive terms then it is hard to follow. This author wrote it so it felt like you were just right next to the action and wrote in great detail. I don’t think I would change anything about this book just that I would probably add on the book or make another book because he has done a lot in the last 5 years. If you like golf I think this is a must read book and it made me think if I set goals and work hard I can accomplish a lot.
