Tiger Woods’ father, Earl Dennison Woods, died of a heart attack in 2006. Now, RadarOnline.com has exclusively obtained photos showing the famed dad’s gravesite remains unmarked, leaving absolutely no trace of his existence.
Exclusive photos obtained by RadarOnline.com show Earl Woods’ burial site at Sunset Cemetery in Manhattan, Kansas as nothing but green grass. The cemetery’s sexton, Mike Mohler, who buried Earl, said the family never purchased a tombstone for Tiger’s dad.
In the photo above, a red flag was placed to show where Earl was laid to rest. Earl’s late parents, Maude and Miles Woods, lay beside him.
“It is still an unmarked grave today,” Mohler told Radar. “It’s in a nice area of the cemetery near a tree. But the only way you would know he’s there is by looking at a cemetery map.”
Unlike Tiger’s dad, Earl’s parents each have a tombstone marking their name, birth date and date of death, shown above.
When Earl first passed away, Mohler said the cemetery attracted “a lot” of visitors.
“People even called back then asking to see it,” Mohler continued. “I don’t like when people ask to see Tiger’s dad’s grave. I prefer them to ask for Earl Woods’ grave.”
In a new biography, Tiger Woods, released Tuesday, authors Jeff Benedict and Armen Keteyian claimed a female called the cemetery on May 4, 2006, one day after Earl’s passing, to alert the sexton that a burial was on its way.
Mohler, who answered the call, asked for the name of the deceased. The female, however, was hesitant, the writers claimed.
“Then Mohler heard a male voice in the background say: ‘Just tell him who he’s burying,’” the book explained.
As Radar readers know, Earl and Tiger’s mom, Ultida Woods, became estranged shortly after Tiger turned pro. In their biography, Benedict and Keteyian exposed Earl’s alleged womanizing ways, including infidelity and a “house of horrors” filled with sex toys and a bevy of women.
Also in the book, dirty details of Tiger’s days in rehab were exposed. In 2009, the golfer’s life was turned upside down as The National Enquirer exposed the champion as a serial cheater, sex addict and prescription pill-popper.
In 2017, Tiger plead guilty to a DUI. After taking a hiatus, he has since returned to playing golf.
