The issue I have with documentaries is that they very rarely tell both sides of the story. They have their own view of what is right, and what they want their viewer to "take from" watching their piece. Few ever present both and encourage you to think for yourself.

All I will say is that this is not a reflection on the way Earl raised Tiger. There's nothing in the dad manual that tells you to prepare your children for worldwide superstar athlete fame and how to handle women throwing themselves at you, legs first. The guy did 2 tours in Vietnam, in a time even worse than the current (in terms of racial inequality), and raised Tiger in a historically racist/prejudice sport and people are dumping on his name (RIP) because of an HBO documentary? That's just wild to me.

Tiger made some mistakes, and his family seems to have forgiven him for it, and that's all that really matters.

Watching the HBO documentary led me to read the book by Jeff Benedict and Armen Keteyian.  The documentary was largely based on this book.  Although, the documentary leaves out a tremendous amount of detail.  Absolutely shocked reading some of the garbage Earl got away with and manipulated people into.  And let's not forget 'Tida.  She was an absolute menace during Tiger's childhood.

If you haven't read the book, I couldn't recommend it more!
