swingerA golfer who achieves success at an early age, goes on a tear that dominates the golf world, then gets caught in illicit affairs? Who on earth could we be talking about? Tiger Woods? Think again, friend. This is the story of Tree Tremont, and it's the focus of the new novel by Sports Illustrated writers Alan Shipnuck and Michael Bamberger. Called, appropriately enough, "The Swinger," it hits stores next week, though it's available now for pre-order through Amazon and other fine booksellers.
Shipnuck joins us today to talk "The Swinger," and since he's a Sports Illustrated writer of no small repute, we also get him on the hook to talk a little about Woods, Rory McIlroy, Yani Tseng and other matters of interest to the golfing community. It's good stuff, check it out.
