Tiger Woods' father Earl dies, leaving quite a legacy
Earl Woods never pushed his son. He just showed him the direction, gave him some fatherly advice, and let him do it on his own. He also made it known what his priorities were.
“I make it very, very clear that my purpose in raising Tiger was not to raise a golfer,” Earl Woods once told Golf Digest. “I wanted to raise a good person.”
Whether he did or not is not up to us to judge. But, by all accounts, Earl Woods certainly met that criteria.

Earl's encouragement has created perhaps the greatest phenom in golf history, an inspiration to minorities, and the world golf community.
