As Tiger Woods new book “The 1997 Masters: My Story” goes on sale, the 14-times major champion meets fans in New York City.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES (Reuters) – Golfer Tiger Woods met with fans and signed copies of his new book “The 1997 Masters: My Story” on Monday (March 20) in New York.

The book is about the first major title he won in record-breaking style.

Hundreds of fans waited for their turn to meet the 14-times major champion inside a Barnes & Noble book store in Manhattan.

“He was my childhood hero. I loved Tiger. He is an amazing guy,” said Matthew Brennan of Rhode Island. “Hopefully, he can come back and play some more good golf again.”

Woods, a four-times Masters champion, has not given up hope of competing in next month’s U.S. Masters and says he is trying everything he can to overcome a nagging back problem.

If Woods is unable to compete at Augusta National, it would be the third time in four years that he has missed the tournament.

The former number-one golf player is now ranked 742nd in the world.
