    This book is great! Anytime you can read about wonderful parenting, it is a highllight in your day. As the mother of 2 boys I can only hope to be so self sacrificing as Earl Woods. Whether you are into golf or not, all children could benefit from more attention from their parents. This book is about putting the child first and helping them make their dreams a reality. While so many children watch tv all day, it sure is refreshing to read about a parent who demonstrates the real meaning of parenting-take the time to train the children up right and they will end up as you trained them. Earl is truly an inspiration. Thank you for writing the book if you read this email Mr. Woods.

    If you’ve admired Tiger as a golfer, wait til you read his father’s account of how he got that way. What a great tribute to the parent/child relationship…a powerful reminder that respect between parents and their children is earned, not given. Also, terrific advice on how to teach your kid to golf at an early age, and wonderful pictures of Tiger and his family

    THE FIRST COACH, July 11, 2002

    This review is from: Training a Tiger: A Father’s Guide to Raising a Winner in Both Golf and Life (Hardcover)

    Children are first introduced to a particular sport through their parents. If they show promise or enthusiasm in the sport their parents are their main supporters. Eldrick “Tiger” Woods was blessed to have parents who recognized his gifts and supported him in developing his talent as a golfer. You too, as a parent can do the same for your child as you review the lessons that Tiger’s father imparted to him.

    Earl Woods shares with his techniques in both raising and training his son, Tiger, as one of the greatest golfers of all time. He describes how to start off your child in golf at an early age, developing drills for them in their practice and keeping them focused on their game. What I found most important about Earl Wood’s presentation is his stress on building a solid relationship with your child. Once your child learns to love, trust and feel secure with their parent then there isn’t anything that he or she can’t handle. Golf is just one means of developing the discipline, integrity and positive behavior that one needs throughout life.

    This is not a detailed book on how to play golf. Earl Woods doesn’t go into an analysis of his son’s techniques. He gives the basics and his own methods which worked with Tiger. His voice is one of advice to parents in training your child for golf. It is up to you to accept or reject Earl Woods’ pointers.

    After reading this book will your child turn into another Tiger Woods? Probably not because each child is unique but you and your child will develop a better relationship with one another due to your mutual love of the game. Incorporating the principles of Woods’ instructions can serve as a launching point
    in enabling your child to improve on his or her game. Woods stresses throughout the book that as a parent you can use golf to raise a child who will be a champion in life. Golf is the vehicle but the foundation is the love of the parent and child.

    If you are introducing golf to your child I highly recommend this book. It gives solid and practical advice in getting your child interested in the game. Earl Woods also provides a list of associations and clubs that sponsor golf lessons and tournaments in developing young players for the sport.
