Tiger Woods will write an overview of his career in a memoir called "Back" to be published by HarperCollins, the company announced on Tuesday. The company gave no date for publication.

Why it matters: This is the first time Woods is recounting an overview of his career. The book is to include details on the scandal and injuries that plagued him in the latter half of his career, as well as his latest 2019 Masters win.

Background: This isn't Woods' first book. In 2017, he wrote about his landmark 1997 Masters win.

There was also a 2018 biography released without his approval called "Tiger Woods." The golfer has said previous stories about him up until this point have been wrong.

"I've been in the spotlight for a long time, and because of that, there have been books and articles and TV shows about me, most filled with errors, speculative and wrong. This book is my definitive story."
