A Legend’s Journey out of the Rough

From humble, wholesome beginnings to recent personal bogies and the scandal that followed, Tiger Woods’ meteoric career and fall from grace has been widely documented. Witness his story, as Tiger prepares to reclaim his spot on the green in the ultimate gentleman’s game.  The updated Tiger Woods biography premieres Thursday, April 1 at 8pm ET/PT on The Biography Channel.

A child prodigy, Eldrick “Tiger” Woods began his golf career at the age of six months, imitating his father’s swing.  Taking the golf world by storm, Tiger has won 95 tournaments, 71 of those on the PGA Tour, and in 2009 was named Athlete of the Decade by The Associated Press.  Scandal in his personal life involving infidelity has tarnished Tiger’s image and resulted in a hiatus from golf and the loss of many lucrative endorsement deals.  Tiger Woods Biography features interviews with Woods, his late father, other sports over-achievers including Michael Jordan, Wayne Gretzky, and Lance Armstrong, as well as a host of golf luminaries.

Woods makes his highly anticipated return to the green at the Masters this April. Will this be the ultimate comeback story? You be the judge.

Please note that due to security concerns and terror threats surrounding the 2008 Dakar Rally, organizers of the event – the Amaury Sport Organization (A.S.O.) – have opted to cancel this year’s rally. OLN will no longer be airing the event as previously announced.

In a statement released today, the A.S.O. claims its “first responsibility is to guarantee the safety of all: that of the populations in the countries visited, of the amateur and professional competitors, of the technical assistance personnel, of the journalists, partners and rally collaborators. A.S.O. therefore reaffirms that the choice of security is not, has never been and will never be a subject of compromise at the heart of the Dakar rally.”
