Forrrrrre! The biography Tiger Woods, written by Jeff Benedict and Armen Keteyian, is being developed into a scripted miniseries, our sister site Deadline reports.

Published last year, the biography begins with the golfer’s infamous 2009 car accident on the day after Thanksgiving, which precipitated his infidelity scandal. A network is not yet attached to the project.
