2021’s Best Sports Documentary Premieres This Sunday
Last year, sports fans embraced ESPN and Netflix's The Last Dance documentary chronicling the 1990s Chicago Bulls of the NBA. Although it's only January, the sports documentary of the year will debut this weekend. HBO and HBO Max will debut Tiger, a look at golf's all time great athletes Tiger Woods. According to HBO's description of the documentary,
Tiger is a two-part documentary offering a revealing look at the rise, fall, and epic comeback of global icon Tiger Woods. The series paints an intimate picture of the prodigy whose dedication and obsession with the game of golf not only took his fame and success to new heights, but also down a dark, spiraling road that eventually led to a legendary sports comeback, culminated by his victory at the 2019 Masters.
Tiger highlights never-before-seen-footage and interviews with those who know Tiger Woods best, including his former caddy and close friend, Steve Williams; golf legend Sir Nick Faldo; his father Earl Woods’ friend and biographer, Pete McDaniel; Tiger’s first true love, Dina Parr; and Rachel Uchitel, the woman at the center of the sex scandal that forever altered Tiger’s world, breaking her silence for the first time.
