In one of the latest videos out, Jamie Jungers, Mistress No. 4, says Tiger was with her when he received a phone call from his mother saying that Tiger’s father was not doing well. Junger says he left her for a couple of hours, returned, they made love and about 2:30 a.m., while still with Jungers, the call came that Tiger’s father, Earl Woods, 74, had died of cancer.
Statement from Tiger at the time:
My dad was my best friend and greatest role model, and I will miss him deeply.” I’m overwhelmed when I think of all the great things he accomplished in his life. He was an amazing dad, coach, mentor, soldier, husband and friend. I wouldn’t be where I am today without him, and I’m honored to continue his legacy of sharing and caring.
Earl Woods died in May 2006. Tiger and Elin became engaged in November 2003 and married on October 5, 2004. Notice that Jungers says she would stay with Tiger at his home in California.
On May 2, 2006, he was with Jamie in his marital home in California when his
mum Tida called about Earl – who had prostate cancer and was in a hospice.
Jamie said: “She told Tiger his dad was in a bad way. Tiger immediately left
to be with him and I stayed at the house. He was gone nearly three hours.
“When he came back, I could see he was preoccupied and worried about his dad –
but when we went to bed he still wanted to have sex as usual….
Less than three weeks after their affair started, Woods invited Jamie to his
marital home – one of five properties he owns around the world.
“There were recent pictures of him and Elin, as well as their wedding photos.
That did make me feel bad for his wife. I’d hate someone to do that to me.
“I knew it wasn’t right and I did try to put a stop to things but Tiger would
pull me into his arms and on to the bed and beg me not to go. He’d tell me,
‘But I love being around you’. And the truth is, I loved being around him.”
When a person is terminal and in the very last hours of their life, the dying person’s vitals indicate that the end is very near – just hours away. What was Tiger thinking as he scuddled back to Jungers, leaving his father to die with…whomever…but certainly not his only son.
