Description
 
Earl Woods, the father of young “Tiger” Woods, was widely ridiculed in 1996 when, in an article anointing his son as “Sports Illustrated’s Sportsman of the Year”, he likened Tiger’s potential impact to that of a messiah. This unseemly proclamation appeared to embody all the worst elements of the sports-parent who seeks financial windfall and personal validation by pushing his child to excel in sports. Not since the dawn of competitive tournament golf has anyone distanced himself from the rest of the world the way Tiger has. He is also one of the first multicultural icons, with African-American, Asian, Native American, and Caucasian elements to his roots. Here, Owen ponders the social, economic, and athletic implications of this amazing young man.
