Additionally, the famous golfer’s documentary will have interviews with some of Woods’ closest friends. There will also be feature interviews from Steve Williams, his long-time caddy.

HBO says also that the Woods documentary will go into depth about his downward spiral. Tiger Woods is finally breaking the silence on his life story.

“[There are] interviews with those who know the golfer best, including golf legend and six-time major champion Sir Nick Faldo. [It will also include] Earl Woods’ friend and biographer, Pete McDaniel; Tiger’s first true love, Dina Parr. [The documentary includes] Rachel Uchitel as well, the woman at the center of the sex scandal that forever altered Tiger’s world, breaking her silence with her first-ever sit-down interview about their relationship.”

Tiger Woods Records

As well as being one of the most popular golfers in the world, Woods is also one of the most successful. Even though Woods has had his ups and downs, he is one of the leading golfers in the world. His PGA tour wins stand at 82, which is tied for the most all-time wins.

Additionally, his 18 major tournament wins have him in second place all-time behind Jack Nicklaus. Woods also has the most consecutive events without missing the cut. That record stands at 142.

Now though, there is another Woods who is up-and-coming now. Charlie Woods is 11-years old and already lighting the golf world on fire. The two Woods played the PNC Championship the past weekend. After the tournament, Woods talks about the things his son needs to work on.

“It doesn’t change, whether you’re playing by yourself, or add a few more people in the group, to tournaments, to whether you have millions of people back home on TV or thousands of people cheering. The shots don’t change. It’s the same shots. You still have to place it from point A to point B. That’s the thing that Charlie’s learning, and he will continue to get better at.”

Along with the release date announcement, HBO also gives us a sneak peak into the documentary.
