Sports Illustrated: Tiger 2.0: ...and Other Great Stories from the World of Golf : For the last two decades, Sports Illustrated's golf beat has been anchored by John Garrity, a tall midwesterner with a polished prose style and a droll sense of humor. In Tiger 2.0...and Other Great Stories from the World of Golf, a collection of his most sparkling pieces, Garrity applies his powers of observation and unrivaled imagination to every aspect of the Ancient Game. For " Past Tense," his classic profile of tour star Vijay Singh, Garrity flies to Fiji to ask that country's strongman dictator about the golfer's secret past. In " Home on the Range" Garrity takes us on a riotous tour of commercial driving ranges. In " Askernish Old" Garrity discovers a Scottish links course that emerges every spring, like Brigadoon, on a Hebridean sea meadow. With this 288-page collection Garrity shows he has a steady swing and easy follow-through.
