About The Book
At the heart of Tiger Woods’ accomplishments is the special bond he shares with his father, mentor and first goal coach, Earl Woods. In Playing Through, Tiger’s dad shares the never-before-told story of the Woods family. Part autobiography and part ultimate insider’s biography of Tiger, Playing Through is Earl Woods’ opportunity to have his say and pass on lessons he has learned along the way.For the first time, Earl faces the critics and cynics, addressing head-on the controversies and rumors that have grabbed headlines. In this brutally honest account of life with Tiger, Earl reveals how Tiger struggled to adapt to life as a pro, the racial attacks and hate mail, the painful sacrifices the family made throughout the years and the real reasons Tiger left Stanford after just two years. He also tells the untold story of what happened the night before Tiger’s Masters’ victory and the unique philosophy behind all of Tiger’s actions, professional and personal.
Earl also shares his own stunning story. Raised by his sister after losing both of his parents by the time he was 13, he chose the military over a promising baseball career. He reveals the racial barriers that tortured him throughout his Army days, how he found his calling in the Green Berets and shocking details about his two tours of duty in Vietnam, where he met and befriended the original “Tiger,” for whom his famous son is named. Woven throughout his recollections is the legacy of his mother and the lessons she imparted to him about family, faith and hard work — all of which helped Earl to nurture and guide his son’s talent.
A tribute to Tiger, to the powerful role of family and the bonds between fathers and sons and to the sport that has made so much possible for the Woods family, Earl’s words will inspire all of us to work hard, dream big and “play through” life’s challenges.
