The Passion of Tiger Woods
An Anthropologist Reportson Golf, Race, and Celebrity Scandal
orin
 
starn
Perhaps the best golfer ever,Tiger Woods rocketed to thetop of a once whites-only sport.Endorsements made him a globalbrand and the world’s richestathlete. The child of a multiracialmarriage, Woods and his blond,blue-eyed wife, Elin Nordegren,seemed to represent a newpostracial America. Then, in late2009, Woods became embroiledin a sex scandal that made head-lines worldwide. In this conciseyet far-reaching analysis, OrinStarn brings an anthropologist’sperspective to bear on Tigergate.He explores our modern mediaobsession with celebrity scandalsand their tawdry ritualized drama, yet he offers much more than the usualbanal moralizing about the rich and famous. Starn explains how Tiger’s travailsand the culture of golf reect broader American anxieties—about race andsex, scapegoating and betrayal, and the role of the sports hero.
The Passionof Tiger Woods
is required reading for all those interested in the high-stakesworld of professional golf, the politics of sports and celebrity, and the mythsand realities surrounding the awed yet riveting gure who remains amongthe most famous athletes of our time.

“Orin Starn’s excellent examination of Tiger Woods offersdeep insight, original thinking, and valuable new perspec-tives. This book tells us a lot about Tiger, but even moreabout ourselves.”—
 JAIME DIAZ
, senior writer,
Golf Digest 
“The next time someone asks me about anthropology’svalue to contemporary cultural debates, I’ll just tell themto read Orin Starn’s
The Passion of Tiger Woods
, a funny,engaging, readable, and unapologetically anthropologicaltake on celebrity scandal, popular culture, and Americansports. From playful musings on a potentially recessive‘golf gene’ to critiques of (wildly popular!) speculativegenetic theories about black athleticism, Starn takes uson an entertaining ride through the history of golf, the riseof its current superstar, and the media maelstrom of racialand sexual imagery that followed from a relatively minor car crash in Florida one fateful Thanksgiving night.”
