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."
— Tiger Woods

Protests over the death of George Floyd and other police-related killings of black men spread across the U.S. Saturday, amid tense standoffs with police in several cities.

The big picture: Floyd's fatal run-in with police is the latest reminder of the disparities between black and white communities in the U.S. and comes as African Americans grapple with higher death rates from the coronavirus and higher unemployment from trying to stem its spread.

Major U.S. cities have implemented curfews and called on National Guard to mobilize as thousands of demonstrators gather across the nation to continue protesting the death of George Floyd.

The state of play: Hundreds have already been arrested as tensions continue to rise between protesters and local governments. Protesters are setting police cars on fire as freeways remain blocked and windows are shattered, per the Washington Post. Law enforcement officials are using tear gas and rubber bullets to try to disperse crowds and send protesters home.

President Trump told reporters on Saturday evening he would postpone the G7 summit to September and expand the meeting to more nations that are not members of the Group of 7.

Details: Trump said he would invite Russia, South Korea, Australia and India to the summit, according to a pool report. "I don’t feel that as a G7 it properly represents what’s going on in the world. It’s a very outdated group of countries," he said.
