Tiger Woods: The Makings of a Champion Reviews
Tiger Woods: The Makings of a Champion by Tim Rosaforte is a non fiction biography of a young boy named Tiger Woods and his relationships with peers and especially, golf. Tiger Woods was basically out of the womb holding a golf club and was a natural from the age of 2. Tiger dominated basically everybody from 6 years old to college, winning very small tournaments to numerous US amatueur titles. Tiger learns how to be one of the best at his age in the world at golf, while maintaining steady grades in pretty hard classes throughout his childhood. Rosaforte does a good job showing how it was for Tiger in his early years before he dominated the PGA tour for years to come. I can connect to this book well because golf is probably my favorite sport and seeing how good Tiger Woods was at a young age makes him one of my biggest role models. I was not pleased that the story started off very slow due to the face Rosaforte introduced Tiger for a long time at the beginning. Other than that, I recommend this book to avid golfers and people who have watched Tiger Woods and have rooted for him for a long time. It is a good book to see how good Tiger Woods was at such a young age.
This was an awesome book it has a movie to go with it just so yea know. The book starts out with a solider in the middle of the jungle hunkered down in a trench beside another anyway it continues on to one of the men giving his life for the other and the one who survived promised to name his son after this heroic man. His name Tiger. Then it jumps to tiger woods and his life struggle. He had to get through a lot of racial barriers in the game of golf. Before tiger came to the game it was a mostly white man ruled sport.
If you like learning about racism and sports you will love this book
