Sport documentaries are all the rage right now – with Netflix series The Last Dance, which focused on the career of basketball legend Michael Jordan, proving a monumental hit.
And Sky Documentaries haven’t waited long to jump on that particular bandwagon – with a new feature length programme focusing on the career of golfing icon Tiger Woods – with particular emphasis on his incredible and unexpected comeback to win the 2019 Masters.
The series charts one of the greatest comebacks in recent sporting history. After four back surgeries and his career on the line, it took an incredible display at Augusta for Tiger Woods to win his fifth Masters, 15th Major and prove all his critics wrong.
This documentary looks at that win while also providing an overview of his career and some of the personal torubles he has faced. It includes some unseen footage, various previously broadcast interviews with Woods from different points in his career and lots and lots of golf!
Here’s everything you need to know about the documentary…
