Tiger Woods’ love for his father

Tiger Woods is one of the most successful and decorated golfers of all time. He has achieved so much in his career and has set countless records. Even after some setbacks, his dedication and commitment to the sport has never wavered. He credits his father for instilling that drive in him from a young age. Earl Woods was a big influence in Tiger’s life and helped him become the legend he is today.

Earl Woods was 74 years old when he passed away from cancer on May 3, 2006. Before his father’s death, Tiger became emotional at the trophy ceremony of his Green Jacket in 2005. He dedicated the win to his father and said he couldn’t wait to hug him. Earl Woods always used to give his son a hug after every win.

Tiger Woods friendship with ex-navy SEAL

In Hank Haney’s book, “The Big Miss,” he reveals the truth about Tiger Woods’ damaging ACL injury and how it was caused by training in a Navy SEAL Kill House back in 2007. Woods’ relationship with his new friend, the ex-military guy, was quite bizarre, according to Haney’s account. He describes how Tiger went on a three-day parachuting excursion, got shot with a rubber bullet, and then employed a “weird” ex-military guy who said he could communicate with Tiger’s dead father.

Tiger became friends with  an unnamed ex-SEAL and hired him as a bodyguard. Haney said “Tiger’s ex-caddie Steve Williams thought the guy was “weird,” and they didn’t like his influence on Tiger. The guy also allegedly told Williams that Tiger’s dead father Earl was “speaking to him on a regular basis and giving him instructions on how to help tiger.”

He returned from a trip to Kill House with a nasty bruise on his thigh from being shot with a rubber bullet. Another trip saw him jumping out of a plane 10 times in three days!
