If you have read the introduction of Tiger on his page in this site, you will read there that "he is of mixed african american, native american, and chinese decent."
I never knew that he has a Chinese decent until now after reading that introduction.
The book is pretty good. I recall the information about his descent back when he started breaking into the field, as it was rather scandalous and talked about alot. Most people in the US who play golf are white.
Wow, what an interesting breed he got. Well, color or race is not a gauge to determine how well one can play or excel in a particular field. Maybe his muliti-cultural origins contributed to his skill a lot.
It seems for many it still is, quite sad in this day and age. I dont think the topic started here was meant for what you are assuming exref. It was a mere statment that many (including myself) did not know Wood's family backround, so please dont take any offense.
