From the father of one of golf's greatest players who has been by Tiger's side at every step along the way comes this inspiring memoir that will give insights on the champion as well as the man who guided him throughout his life and career. For the first time, Earl Woods faces the critics and cynics, addressing head-on the controversies and rumors that have grabbed headlines. Earl shares his own remarkable story: Raised by his sister after losing both parents by the time he was 13, he chose the military over a promising baseball career (he was the first African-American player in the Big Eight Conference), serving two tours as a Green Beret in Vietnam and retiring with the rank of colonel. As he provides an insider's look at his son's extraordinary life thus far, Earl provides the background of how he, his wife, and Tiger have evolved as a family, despite the obstacles. At its core, Playing Through heartwarming celebration of the unique bond between fathers and sons and shared hopes and dreams. Foreword by Tiger Woods.
