HBO confirms two-part Tiger documentary series
While the co-author of the The New York Times No. 1 best-selling book “Tiger Woods” let slip a few details about the possibility of a new documentary series back in March, HBO has now made it official.
The two-part series “Tiger” will make its debut exclusively on HBO and HBO Max in the US on December 13 and just a month after Woods will defend his 2019 title at the rescheduled Masters, followed a week later by part two.

It is unclear at this stage whether the series will be made available in Australia, however, Foxtel carries several HBO titles and with the recent success of the Michael Jordan series on Netflix, the documentary is sure to generate plenty of interest world-wide.
“Tiger” will take viewers through his entire career from the age of two up to his stunning comeback at the 2019 Masters where, against all odds, he claimed his 15th major title.
“Since his introduction to the world at the age of two, Tiger Woods has inhabited our collective consciousness as a prodigy, a pioneer, a champion, a global icon, and then a tabloid headline,” said the team behind the series.
“After months of research and countless hours of revelatory conversations, we discovered that he has always been a projection of outsized expectations. His father, his sponsors, and his fans all made Tiger Woods into whom they wanted him to be.”
“Our goal was to dive deeper and create an unflinching and intimate portrait of a man, who like all of us, is imperfect and inherently human.”
Among those who were interviewed for the project include Woods’ ex-caddie, Steve Williams, Nick Faldo, Earl Woods’ friend and biographer Pete McDaniel and Rachel Uchitel, who was one of the many women at the centre of Woods’ off-the-course scandal.
