Earl Dennison Woods (March 5, 1932 - May 3, 2006) was an athlete, a US Army infantry officer, and the father of golfer Tiger Woods. He played catcher, and was good enough that the Kansas City Monarchs of the Negro Leagues offered him a contract. Woods served two full tours of duty in the Vietnam War, the second as part of the elite Green Berets.
