Heading into the 1997 Masters Tournament, Tiger Woods had already been a household name in the world of golf. He was 21 years old at the time, fresh off a PGA Tour Rookie of the Year award that came after he won three consecutive U.S. Junior Amateur Championships before an All-America career at Stanford. He had already been in the Masters field as an amateur, but this one was different. It certainly didn’t start well for Woods as he shot a 4-over par 40 on the first nine holes. He was headed for missing the cut when he made history. Over the back nine on that Thursday, he made an eagle and four birdies for a 6-under score of 30. It put him in fourth place, three shots behind the leader. He shot a 66 in the second round to give him his first lead in a major as a professional. He was one stroke better in the third round as he opened up a nine-stroke lead over Costantino Rocca. With all the pressure on his shoulders, Woods shot a 69 in the final round for an 18-under par total of 270. His margin of victory still remains a Masters Tournament record. His life and career would change forever after putting on the green jacket for the first time that weekend. Woods worked with Lorne Rubenstein to tell his story of that epic weekend in this book. Woods has signed this limited edition (25) “1997 Masters: My Story” book in black paint pen. His signature is deemed authentic by virtue of Upper Deck Authenticated’s Five-Step Process.
