A former college girlfriend of Tiger Woods appeared on EOnline.com video today saying that the golfer, “was devastated by his own father’s philandering, according to his high school sweetheart.”

Dina Parr remembered calls from Woods “from the road during the summer to talk about his parents’ relationship.”
“He would just call crying and say, ‘My dad is with another woman,’ and that would be all he could say. He would be so upset, so I just tried to be there for him and listen to him.
“He loved his father. And I know that was the one thing about his dad that he could never get over. So yeah, it’s interesting that it’s turned out that he’s doing the same thing.”
Earl’s separation from wife Kutilda, much like Tiger’s philandering, was an open secret in the golf media. Despite the fact that Earl lived apart from Woods mother without divorcing her, the media never reported it in the innumerable, glowing profiles about Tiger’s so-called model father.
I’ve been amused by the numerous members of the media the past month who have claimed that Earl would’ve unleashed hell on son Tiger if he was still around. Truth to be told, Tiger was just falling his dad’s lead. For all we know Earl would’ve gone Clinton Portis on his son.
