NEW YORK (AP) Tiger Woods is getting back to work – as an author.

Woods is writing his first book since 2001, which is due out next spring. The book does not have a title yet, but it will be about his historic victory in the 1997 Masters.

It is scheduled to be released in hardcover, as an e-book and in audio editions in March, a month before the 20th anniversary of that watershed moment in golf.

Woods is writing the book with Canadian golf writer Lorne Rubenstein. Grand Central Publishing acquired the rights to it.

Woods says his 12-shot victory that made him the first player of black heritage to win a major came in one of the most important tournaments in his life.
