Tiger and His Dad

I actually watched the news the other day, and saw that Tiger Woods' dad, Earl Woods, had passed away. The news program showed how Tiger always gave his dad a big bear hug after competitions. What a wonderful example of a father/child relationship. I will have to admit that I never watch golf. I know who Tiger Woods is, but had no idea about his dad. The love his father had for him is obvious and inspiring. I am adding Tiger and his dad to my list of heroes, and examples of people I want my children to emulate.

Tiger says,
"My dad was my best friend and greatest role model,
and I will miss him deeply."

I agree with your post. I watched a biography of Tiger Woods not to long ago and his dad was a VERY important part of his life.

My mother has followed Tiger Woods carirre since he was a young boy. I was under the impression that his dad had died a few years ago.
He is a good role model for young people of any race today.
