I thought this documentary was really well done. I especially enjoyed the interviews and home videos of his first girlfriend. It was nice to know that at least for a few years Tiger was able to at times be a normal teenager. Brutal though that Tiger cut her out of his life so suddenly, as well as the platonic friend of many years.
I am wondering how HBO obtained the home videos of Tiger playing golf as a child? Much seems like it may have been filmed by his mom, so I am wondering how they could have obtained them other than through her?
It was interesting seeing the plane towing the banner about Tiger attending treatment for sex addiction, at the 2010 Masters. I attended the 2010 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach a couple of months later, and there was a small plane towing a banner directed at his caddy Williams, to the effect that he knew about Tiger's cheating. Hubby and I happened to pass by Tiger on a practice day as he was sitting on a golf cart with the driver, and a body guard standing beside the driver. I contemplated going over to ask for Tiger's autograph, but judging from the scowl on Tiger's face he was definitely giving off a "leave me alone" vibe. I had gotten several autographs on my visor earlier, so decided that I was happy with the ones I had, from the players who were happy to sign for the spectators.
I have noticed though in the last few years that Tiger is much more friendly with his fellow golfers, and seems to be playing for the pure love of the game. I guess all that he has gone through with scandals, addiction and injuries has finally brought him to that point, so good on him.
