Tiger Woods is ready to tell his own story.
HarperCollins announced on Tuesday that pro golfer Tiger Woods will be releasing a memoir called Back, which they described as a “candid and intimate narrative of an outsize American life.”
“I’ve been in the spotlight for a long time and because of that, there have been books and articles and TV shows about me, most filled with errors, speculative and wrong,” Woods said in a press release. “This book is my definitive story. It’s in my words and expresses my thoughts. It describes how I feel and what’s happened in my life.”
The book will outline Woods’ life from the time he was a young celebrated golf prodigy to his back injuries and other personal issues. It will also cover his comeback at 43 years old, including his 2019 Masters victory.
This announcement comes just months after it was revealed that a scripted miniseries on Woods’ life based on Jeff Benedict’s book is in the works. Benedict’s book begins with the golf player’s 2009 car accident and reports that he cheated on his wife.
While there is no release date for Woods’ book, he did say that he’s been working on it “steadily.” HarperCollins also added that the book has “the full co-operation of his friends, family, and inner circle.”
