Tiger Woods


Biography of Tiger Woods "Let your clubs speak for you." Tiger Woods was too young to
notice the racism around him. He didn't understand that in this world, people were judged
by the color of their skin. He couldn't speak out about it; he couldn't voice his
opinions, or come up with possible solutions because he was too young. Tiger faced many
racial ordeals throughout his life, mainly because he was half-Thai and half-black. He
broke into the sport of golf as one of the youngest. He not only wanted to be the best
black golfer; he wanted to be the b est golfer. The only way Tiger dealt with racism was
to let his clubs do all the talking for him. The book starts off with Earl Woods, Tiger's
father, during the Vietnam War. A sniper almost took out Earl but his friend saved him.
Later on that day, he gets in a predicament with a bamboo viper, and once again, his
friend saves him. The friend's name was Nguyen Phong, and he was good in combat; he was a
tiger in combat. Nguyen Phong had the nickname of "Tiger". Earl vowed that if he ever had
an o ther son, he would call him "Tiger". After the war, back in the United States, Earl
met a Thai woman named Kultida and he married her and had a son. They named the baby
Eldrick, but Earl called him "Tiger". Tiger Woods took interest in golf at a young age. He
would watch from his crib as his father would practice his swing. He began playing golf
since before he could walk. When he got a few years older, he began to compete in the
Junior Nationals tournaments against older boys. He didn't hav e the strength to drive the
ball far, but he had skill; he was blessed. Earl made Tiger some miniature clubs out of
his old ones and from that moment on, he was obsessed with the sport. The way that Tiger
