Tiger Woods appears on cover of Time magazine

Placing putting over politics, Time magazine has Tiger Woods on the cover.

The issue, on newsstands Monday, has an interview with Woods and breaks down the revamped swing that helped him complete golf's career Grand Slam at 24 -- the youngest player to do so.

Woods' cover appearance comes between the Republican and Democratic national conventions, and 10 days before he defends his title at the PGA Championship.

It's the first time he has been alone on Time's cover. Woods was part of a montage on the "most influential people in America" a week after he won the 1997 Masters by a record 12 strokes.

A little while later, Woods began to rebuild his swing.

"I knew I wasn't in the greatest positions in my swing at The Masters," Woods told Time.

"But my timing was great, so I got away with it. And I made almost every putt. You can have a wonderful week like that even when your swing isn't sound. But can you still contend in a tournament with that swing when your timing isn't as good? Will it hold up over a period of time? The answer to those questions, with the swing I had, was no. And I wanted to change that."
