HBO brings you this documentary on one of the best sports figures in history: Tiger Woods. Rise, fall and redemption.

Tiger, the original documentary on the life of Tiger Woods from HBO

As you will no doubt recall, in November 2009, the National Enquirer published a story which declared that Tiger Woods had had an extramarital affair with a woman named Rachel Uchitel. Two days later, the golfer was involved in an early morning traffic accident. This gave rise to extensive speculation about whether the accident was related to the conflicts which had arisen in Woods’s life due to the article. But the matter did not stop there. In the end, more than a dozen reports would appear in the media of women claiming to have also had affairs with the sports figure, who had no choice but to publicly admit to his infidelities. That statement was accompanied by the announcement that he was going to take a break from his professional career. By then, it had been determined that his back had been seriously injured in the accident. And so, from 2009 on, the world witnessed the fall of the man who had been hailed as the best golfer in the world. Nonetheless, there was still much more to his story.

HBO brings us Tiger (2021), a two-part documentary revealing details of the rise, tragic fall, and return and redemption of the golf phenomenon Eldrick Tont "Tiger" Woods. 

Directed by Matthew Heineman and Matthew Hamachek, and based on the book Tiger Woods by Jeff Benedict and Armen Keteyian, the film offers unreleased images and exclusive interviews with people close to Woods. They include his former caddie and friend Steve Williams; six-time major champion Nick Faldo; one of his first loves, Dina Parr; and even Rachel Uchitel, the woman at the center of the sex scandal that cast open the gates of hell. We will journey from his successful professional life to the world beyond the spotlight, a universe populated not only with Woods’s personal demons, but also the ambition and dual intentions of many of those around him.

About the directors: Heineman is known on the documentary circuit for City of Ghosts (2017) and Cartel Land (2015), which garnered him considerable attention. The second earned him an Academy Award for Documentary Feature nomination, and he took home the Primetime Emmy Award for Exceptional Merit in Documentary Filmmaking. Hamachek, who is primarily an editor, has been nominated for the Emmys on more than one occasion. And at Sundance, he received the Best Editing award for Gideon's Army (2013).

Tiger, the definitive Tiger Woods documentary. Coming in January. On HBO and HBO GO.
