Debuting this holiday weekend, Tiger Woods: America’s Son from ESPN's The Undefeated will look at the famed golfer's success and how it relates to his racial identity, director and producer Lauren Stowell tells PEOPLE.

"This is a portrait of Tiger through the prism of race and culture – how the world viewed him, and how he viewed himself," Stowell explains. "We explore what it means to be pioneering and Black, and the expectations that are attached to your achievements."

Reports this week said Woods was eyeing a return in May at the Players Championship in Florida, but he faces setbacks. 'The tweets that appeared this weekend about Tiger 's health are ridiculous, and absolutely false,' Steinberg said in a statement.

The one-hour documentary includes interviews with Woods' fellow golfers, former caddies, and journalists who have frequently covered his career, in addition to archival footage of the athlete and his family.

"Tiger’s father, Earl Woods, was of African American, Chinese and Native American descent, and his mother, Kultida, is of Thai, Chinese and Dutch descent," Stowell — who previously won Sports Emmy Awards for outstanding long feature and outstanding short documentary — says of the importance of Woods' race in the film.

  Opinion: Jack Nicklaus gets Masters under way, stays mum on Trump After getting the 2020 Masters off to a soggy start with his ceremonial tee shot at dawn, Jack Nicklaus said he was done talking about politics. “I think I’ve said enough about that,” he said. “I don’t think this is the place for politics.”From NFL plays to college sports scores, all the top sports news you need to know every day. Nicklaus was responding to a question I asked in a Thursday morning news conference with fellow honorary starter Gary Player.

According to the report, Woods said he was on his way home from golfing, and his story of where he was going and coming from changed several times. In a statement on Monday, Woods said alcohol was not involved and that he had "an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications."

"That history puts into perspective the significance of Tiger’s achievement in 1997 [at The Masters tournament] — becoming the first Black player to win a major championship — but is also a yardstick of how far we’ve come and, and how far we have yet to go," she tells PEOPLE. "This is a critical time to talk honestly about issues around race, and maybe this doc can start some of those important conversations."

Tiger Woods: America’s Son will premiere on Sunday, Nov. 29 at 7 p.m. EST on ESPN and the ESPN App.

For those that tune in, Stowell says, "You will see Tiger in a new light, but also be challenged to think about perceptions of race that our country has held for centuries."

Parents of 3! Enrique Iglesias and Anna Kournikova’s Family Album .
Their sunshine! Enrique Iglesias and Anna Kournikova mostly keep their three kids — Nicholas, Lucy and Mary — out of the spotlight, but the proud parents occasionally share adorable photos of the trio. The singer and the tennis star began dating in 2001 after meeting on the set of his “Escape” music video. Following a brief split, the couple secretly welcomed twins in December 2017 after keeping her pregnancy entirely under wraps. Iglesias and Kournikova introduced their children to the world in January 2018, when the brother-sister duo made their debut on Instagram. “My Sunshine,” the pair both captioned posts featuring the babies. The Grammy winner gushed in October 2018 about watching the athlete transition into her new role. “It’s incredible to watch her be such a great mother,” he told U.K. paper The Sun at the time. “It’s incredible to watch a mom do what she does, when a mother’s instinct kicks in.” As for Iglesias, he was open to giving up his career to be a full-time father. “There are days when I’d be lying if I said that stopping didn’t cross my mind. That probably could become a reality in the near future,” he said. “Maybe I don’t see myself [doing] anything other than a few albums and that’s it. Then, never doing anything again other than being a dad.” Kournikova once again pulled off a private pregnancy in 2020. The twosome welcomed daughter Mary in January of that year, and fans were none the wiser until his half-brother, Julio Iglesias Jr.
