Tiger Woods to author book on 1997 Masters blowout win

Tiger Woods is ready to tell his side of the story of the 1997 Masters, 20 years after he won it in blowout fashion.

Woods announced on Monday that he'll write a book about his first major win, which will be released in March 2017 and co-authored with Canadian writer Lorne Rubenstein. Rubenstein scored a wide-ranging and telling interview with Woods, published by Time Magazine in December 2015.

"The 1997 Masters was one of the most important tournaments in my life for many reasons," Woods said in a release on his website. "I think about the hug with my dad and all the events that went on that week. A lot of people know generally about that tournament, but this gives me a chance to tell in detail what happened on and off the course."

Woods won his first major championship and the first of four Masters green jackets by a record 12 shots, posting an 18-under 270 total that remains (tied with Jordan Spieth's 2015 tally) the 72-hole scoring record for the Masters. At 21 years old, Woods became the youngest Masters winner.

This will be Woods' second book and his first since the 2001 instructional book "How I Play Golf."
