The Masters, the U.S. Open, the British Open, the PGA Championship.

The Career Grand Slam.

At age 24.

He could very well be the greatest golfer to ever play the game.

Raising the Bar is the story of how Tiger Woods changed his life, his game, and the way America views golf. There have been many biographies written about Tiger’s life and early days with the PGA, but each ends with his triumphant victory in the 1997 Masters Championship. In the last few years Tiger has endured a lifetime of experiences, including his growing pains, his perceived slump in 1998, his incredible winning streak from 1999--2000, culminating in his career grand slam. Critically acclaimed golf writer and commentator Tim Rosaforte has watched Tiger since he burst onto the golfing scene and been an up-close observer of the Tiger’s life both on and off the course. Totally revised and updated, Raising the Bar includes Tiger’s latest victories—including his historic 2001 Masters victory that completed the Tiger slam—and provides intense insight into his amazing career.
