How bad this made for TV movie is.
14 March 2006 | by smokeyrodgersSee all my reviews

This is a clear example of people with more money than sense, mistaking themselves as artists and trying to feed off the talent of others. A movie about Tiger Woods' life up until that point, all 23 years of it, is not that entertaining. As a viewer you are not treated to anything more than could be summed up in...oh, i don't know...a 30 second Nike commercial.

Particular bad points include the far from accurate portrayal of Colin Montgomerie with a broad Scottish accent. (just because he's Scottish)

The responsibility must fall to the director to do his research or to just forget about this project for at least another 20 years.
