Summary

One publicly imploded marriage. Two car accidents. Eight surgeries. And now, a miracle of hard work and storied talent: five Masters wins. Once hailed as "the greatest closer in history" before he fell further than any beloved athlete in America's memory, Tiger swung at the world's wildest expectations and beat the skeptics with his April 2019 championship. Roaring Back traces his road to Augusta and the improbable, phenomenal comeback of one of the greatest golfers in history.

New York Times best-selling author Curt Sampson details the highs and lows of Woods's career in three gripping acts. From his startling loss at the 2009 PGA Championship, detrimental obsession with his swing, and that infamous night involving an ex-wife and a nine-iron...to adoring fans and lucrative sponsors turning their backs, exclusive interviews with past instructors and PGA tour peers, and an arrest complete with a toxicology report...finally to Tiger coming from behind for his fifth green jacket as the crowd rumbled in Georgia, and how his comeback rivals those of the most dramatic in his sport.

As this enthralling audiobook reveals, Tiger never doubted the perseverance of the winner in the mirror.

Very poor

Overpriced and incredibly poor. The narrator has possibly the worst voice I’ve heard delivering an audiobook. Couple that with very little substance, the book is supposed to be about Tiger Woods but there are constant sidetrack fillers that have no connection to him at all .

Cheap money grab for Sampson

Pretty clear he didn't want to fully research the material and provide new insight. He basically just rehashed stuff he and others have written before, much of it just to fill space... As an example, he spends a lot of time off topic describing how Ben Hogan had a good comeback too and telling you all about it... Conveniently, Sampson wrote a biography of Hogan (and a good one). But lots of off topic stuff and very little new insight on Tiger or his comeback
