The Big Miss is Hank Haney's candid and surprisingly insightful account of his tumultuous six-year journey with Tiger Woods, during which the supremely gifted golfer collected six major championships and rewrote golf history.

This being my first audiobook (I spend a lot of time on the road for work) I wasn't sure what to expect, this has a bit of everything, engaging narrator, storyline and subject matter.
