Golf club presents book to Tiger Woods celebrating his dad’s roots to local area

Tiger Woods has been presented with a new book which celebrates his father’s special place in the history of an Angus golf club.

The sporting superstar is competing at the 147th Open being held at Carnoustie.

Members of the town’s Dalhousie Golf Club have passed on a copy of the book they have published to celebrate the 150th anniversary of its inauguration in 1868.

It includes a story about Woods’ late father Earl, who accompanied his son when he first came to Carnoustie for the Scottish Open in 1995.

He had a conversation with Dalhousie captain John Lindquist and asked for his autograph.

Present Dalhousie club captain Donald Ford said: “One can only wonder whether Tiger still cherishes John’s signature in the memorabilia left to him by his father.”
