A documentary on Tiger Woods was released earlier this year took a look into the golf legend’s life.
The two-part HBO Max documentary gave a view of Woods’ golf career from turning heads on the course as a child to his infidelity and arrest to his roaring comeback into the mainstream.
The trailer, released during the Masters in November, featured clips of home videos, shots with his father and the relentless press coverage he received during the scandalous time of his life. Woods was not interviewed for the documentary, but the film features his former caddy Steve Williams, Nick Faldo, biographer Pete McDaniel and Woods’ mistress Rachel Uchitel.
Woods’ agent slammed the documentary before its January release.
"Just like the book it is based off of, the upcoming HBO documentary is just another unauthorized and salacious outsider attempt to paint an incomplete portrait of one of the greatest athletes of all-time," Woods’ agent Mark Steinberg told Golfworld.
Steinberg refers to the book "Tiger," a biography written by Armen Keteyian and Jeff Benedict. Keteyian was an executive producer for the documentary series.
The documentary received mixed reviews as critics began to watch.
Woods was involved in a scary single-car crash on Tuesday. He reportedly received multiple leg injuries.
