Tiger Woods lifts the Claret Jug after winning the 2005 British Open at the Royal and Ancient Golf Club in St. Andrews, Scotland.

Tiger Woods will be one of the featured stars of a new documentary series celebrating the Open Championship by Sky Sports.

The series, which was commissioned by the R&A, kicks off at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 12 and features the 14-time major-winner speaking candidly about his 20-year career on Tour, including his three British Open Championships (2000, 2005 and 2006).

Chronicles of Champion Golfer will continue thereafter in two 30-minute episodes per week leading up to the 2016 event at Royal Troon Golf Club in Scotland. The project will also profile golf legends Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson, Nick Faldo, Greg Norman, Darren Clarke and Rory McIlroy. R&A archival footage will accompany the stories told by the golfers, first person.

A profile on Norman on April 19-20 will follow Woods, followed by Watson on May 3-4.
