Pulitzer Prize winner Buzz Bissinger, author of “Friday Night Lights,” explores Tiger Woods’ downfall in the new February issue of Vanity Fair.

But it’s the magazine’s cover shot — a shirtless Woods lifting weights — that’s driving huge social networking buzz.
The photograph, shot pre-scandal by Annie Leibovitz, is one of a full portfolio inside the magazine of never-before-seen shots of a raw Woods.
One interesting insight into the real Tiger, whom Bissinger refers to as a “sex addict,” comes from a 1997 GQ interview in which a 21-year-old Woods makes a series of profane quips about women, sex and athletes.
