Earl Woods, 74, the father of pro golfer Tiger Woods, died Wednesday after an 8-year battle with prostate cancer.
Woods was a retired Army lieutenant colonel who was credited by his son for developing a mental tenacity that led to Tiger Woods' ascension to number one in the golf world.
In a statement posted on his Web site, Woods said, “My dad was my best friend and greatest role model, and I will miss him deeply. I’m overwhelmed when I think of all of the great things he accomplished in his life. He was an amazing dad, coach, mentor, soldier, husband and friend. I wouldn’t be where I am today without him, and I’m honored to continue his legacy of sharing and caring.”
