Critic Reviews for Tiger Season 1

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (12)

Where Tiger differs from many sports docs, including last year's ESPN series about Jordan, is in its candid and sometimes wrenching portrayal of its subject's emotional life.

Mar 2, 2021 | Full Review…

Maybe there's high interest in an interview with one of his mistresses from a decade ago. But mostly this is old news repackaged as a classic sports redemption story.

Jan 11, 2021 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

A series with a professional sheen, a few interesting stories that fans will want to hear, but too little depth and insight to make the green.

Jan 8, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

The documentary's beats may be familiar to those who have followed his career closely. Nonetheless, it manages to offer some compelling insight within its tight framework.

Jan 19, 2021 | Full Review…

Rather than being a thorough look at one of the world's most fascinating athletes, "Tiger" eventually fails to treat his story as anything other than entertainment.

Jan 19, 2021 | Full Review…

I have almost no interest in golf...Nevertheless, I found Tiger to be a very well done and gripping documentary.

Mar 3, 2021 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

Tiger ultimately is a fascinating look at a phenomenal sportsman ("Michael Jordan in long pants") who struggled to deal with the pressures of fame and succumbed to the temptations it offered.

Jan 21, 2021 | Full Review…

When Tiger is at its best, it unveils how nobody seems to truly know the man.

Jan 15, 2021 | Full Review…

While it does not really break any new ground in telling the complex life story of Woods - the phenomenal mixed-race golf champion who became an iconic figure - it's still engrossing.

Jan 15, 2021 | Full Review…

It's fascinating. I'm impressed by how well it's made and the quality of the insight some of the interviewees provide.

Jan 15, 2021 | Full Review…

Captivating, heartbreaking, and triumphant, much like the legendary athlete's actual life.

Jan 12, 2021 | Full Review…

What results is a two-part feature that lives in the shadow of much better sports documentaries exploring similar themes.

Audience Reviews for Tiger: Season 1

    Too bad we didn't get any interviews from Tiger
  • Feb 16, 2021
    I give this documentary 5 stars even though it lacked a strong ability to step all the way back and see Tiger Woods as the truly fragile human being he is (or was for the vast majority of his career & life). But I grew up in the thick of his magical existence in front of the camera and couldn't help enjoying this fascinating replay of his life, talent, struggles, relationships, father, mother, and divine golf swing anymore than the producers could. This is a must see.

    This show was produced by people who have never played golf or respect the game. Trash

    A pesar de que poco o nada me interesa el golf, más allá de llamarme la atención al saber que son los deportistas mejor pagos del mundo, esta historia de Eldrick Tont «Tiger» Woods es apasionante, lástima que le faltó edición, los 160 minutos pudieron ser menos de 100 sin tanto chisme y torneo. La vida de Woods es la clásica vida de niño genio explotado por su familia, castrado socialmente y reprimido emocionalmente, todo un caso de estudio. Interesante también desde el punto de vista de los medios de comunicación y el inmundo manejo que hacen de este tipo de casos.

    Very compelling. Sympathetic and revealing. Tho' not a giant golfer or golf fan, my family is filled with them and--as most people compos mentis during Tiger Woods' heyday--I was quite aware of his ascent and success, as well as his pretty shocking fall from grace into Vegas women-for-hire (sometimes 20 at a time--a bouquet of 1/2 blonde and 1/2 brunette), drugs, booze, and gambling. The look into his background--from childhood through college, and his father's relationship with him (as well as insights into his father's behavior and psyche) were fascinating. On whole, remarkably well-done, somber, respectful, and illuminating.

    Well produced doc, albeit a bit too salacious at times, that was more focused on the personal life of one of the world's most private mega-athletes. The strongest aspect of this two part series were the interviews with Tiger's friends, acquaintances, and work colleagues. As a golf fan Stevie Williams, Tiger's former caddy, provided the most interesting insights, however I'd be lying if I said that part of the brain TMZ expertly preys on wasn't almost as interested to hear Rachel Uchitel as well.

    Average doco, a bunch of friends talking smack about their "friend". This doco ain't the real deal, it's a point of view of the director and people wanting the spotlight. Tiger doesn't even interview at it. I thought this was going to be like The Last Stand; at least MJ has the balls to not deny who he is. 1 star, don't waist your time.
  • Jan 20, 2021
    Felt like tangential people from his life making stuff up and trying to get on TV. Just awful
  • Jan 18, 2021
    Anyone interested in Tiger Woods will want to watch this at some point. His fans might shut it off because of the overkill of character assassination -- of Tiger's father, Earl. Those who don't like Tiger might learn that, while he portrays an immortal figure on the golf course, he is like the rest of us: only human. And "Tiger" is only an overlong documentary.
