While many parents encourage their children to become the next
Einstein or Yo-Yo Ma, some push their kids to become the next Tiger
Woods. No longer does an elite, elderly set dominate golf. A new
class of driven teenaged players is transforming the game, and a
series of high-profile, professionally- run tournaments determine
which of these teens have a shot at reaching the top levels.In
Shooting for Tiger, William Echikson takes us inside a spirited
season of the American Junior Golf Association's elite tournaments.
From the fairways, Echikson unveils a fascinating sub culture: kids
who have foregone traditional childhoods, families determined to
produce champions, and rigorous golf academies devoted to training
the world's top prospects. Vividly told, Shooting for Tiger
examines the real costs of professionalizing young players and
offers an unforgettable portrait of athletic obsession.
