About this item

With an eye for vivid detail and indefatigable determination, ESPN.com contributer Bob Smiley tracked Tiger Woods for all 604 holes of his 2008 season, from the seaside cliffs of San Diego to the deserts of Dubai, through the hallowed gates of Augusta National, and, ultimately, back to California for the greatest U.S. Open of all time. There, at Torrey Pines, it took Tiger 91 holes to beat charismatic journeyman Rocco Mediate to win his fourteenth major - on one leg. Chronicling every dramatic and often hysterical moment from the gallery, Follow the Roar is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure through the most spectacular and inspiring season in Tiger Woods's celebrated career.
