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

Nuclear free-for-all: The arms control era may be ending

Illustration: Aïda Amer/Axios

The mushroom clouds over Hiroshima and Nagasaki have remained unreplicated for 75 years in part because the U.S. and Soviet Union — after peering over the ledge into nuclear armageddon — began to negotiate.

Why it matters: The arms control era that began after the Cuban Missile Crisis may now be coming to a close. The next phase could be a nuclear free-for-all.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer sent a letter to Postmaster General Louis DeJoy on Thursday calling for the recent Trump appointee to reverse operational changes to the U.S. Postal Service that "threaten the timely delivery of mail" ahead of the 2020 election.

Why it matters: U.S. mail and election infrastructure are facing a test like no other this November, with a record-breaking number of mail-in ballots expected as Americans attempt to vote in the midst of a pandemic.
