After the news surfaced of Tiger’s infidelity, Kultida, who always stood by her son’s side at golf tournaments and public events, was
reportedly very disappointed in him. “[She] is hurt, angry, and disappointed in Tiger,” a friend of Kultida’s told People magazine. “She wants to know how he could do this to his family.” Kultida was especially disappointed since Woods' father, Earl Woods, who died from prostate cancer a few years ago, was
allegedly unfaithful to her many years ago, and the incident was said to have left Tiger “devastated.” Kultida Punswad, of half Thai and half Chinese descent, met Tiger’s father, Lt. Earl Woods, while he was serving in Thailand, and the two married in Brooklyn, New York, in 1969. Kultida gave birth to Eldrick—better known as “Tiger”—in 1975.
