Publisher Description

A sports hero seeks a comeback in this wildly funny and ultimately redemptive novel.

His name, as we all know, is Herbert X. “Tree” Tremont, and he’s the richest and most celebrated athlete of our time—a multicultural golfing icon with fifty-three Tour wins, thirteen major victories, a smoking hot wife, and two adorable kids. But when a reporter uncovers evidence that Tree’s sexual appetites are as prodigious as his tee shots, his public and private lives collide, producing the juiciest scandal in sports history. In this wickedly funny novel that takes readers between the ropes and the sheets of the PGA Tour as never before, the only thing more entertaining than Tree’s downfall is his quest for redemption.

Good book, enjoyed it!!

Eerily close to the truth

A throughly enjoyable read. The author did a good job of exposing what makes people like "Tree" tick. Very plausible story of what really happened and how it happened. Too bad Tiger didn't have Mr Baumgartner in his circle of trusted friends to help guide him through his mess. Where the book departed from the actual events, was the actions that "Tree" took to re-build his life. The real Tree/Tiger, should have taken the route outlined in this book, but in real life he is still engaged in the cover up and hasn't changed at all.

I can't believe they wrote this story

How do you write the Tiger Woods story using somewhat different twists, ie, bashed by a poker iron instead of a 7 iron, Bill Martinson instead of Phil Mickelson?
I guess the authors figured if they went ahead and wrote the sleazy story of Tiger's downfall, they would sell some books, but if Tiger sued them, they would sell a million books. Win, win.
It was a fascinating ride through the whole Tiger episode with an insider's fly-on-the-wall perspective. We get to visit the yacht, the private jets, the magnificent homes as if the author had truly been there. How much of it is close to the truth? Who cares. Quick, fun read for any golf fan
