who ever lived and arguably the greatest individual athlete in modern history For a fifteen year spanfrom Augustwhen he won his first of three consecutive US Amateur Championships as an eighteen year old high school senior to the early morning hours of November when he crashed his SUV into a tree and effectively ended the most dominant run in the history of golfWoods was a human whirlwind of heart stopping drama and entertainment responsible for some of the most memorable moments in the history of televised sports Woods will forever be measured against Jack Nicklaus who wonmajor championships But the Tiger Effect cant be measured in statistics A literary comparison may befitting Given the full spectrum of his awe inspiring gifts Woods was nothing less than a modern day Shakespeare He was

like a corkscrew It was Friday May and warm temperatures had softened the earth at Sunset Cemetery in Manhattan Kansas Clump by clump the balding forty four year old sexton meticulously dug a grave piling the dirt beside it In twenty four hours the ashen remains of the citys most famous son would be laid to rest there Hardly anyone knew the burial was happening and Mohler aimed to keep it that way The night before Mohler had been home watching television when his phone rang It was about nine pm and the caller didnt identify herself We have a burial coming your way she said An odd way to begin a call thought Mohler Especially one made to his home at such a late hour Whats the name of the deceased he asked I cant tell you that the woman said Well I cant help you if you wont give me a name he told her I cant do that unless you sign confidentiality papers she said Mohler told her that wouldnt be necessary The state had reuired him to sign documents promising confidentiality when he became a sexton seventeen years earlier I need to know who Im burying to even know if they have a plot here he said She assured Mohler that the deceased had a burial plot Then Mohler heard a male voice in the background say Just tell him who hes burying Im calling on behalf of Tiger Woods the woman told Mohler His father has passed Lieutenant Colonel Earl Dennison Woods died of a heart attack at his home in Cypress California on MayHe was seventy four years old and had been in failing health his body weakened by cancer and his longtime affection for alcohol and cigarettes A Green Beret who served two tours in Vietnam Earl achieved worldwide acclaim for his almost mythical role in raising the most famous golfer of all time He was notorious for making outlandish statements like the time he predicted in Sports Illustrated that his then twenty year old son would haveinfluence on the world than Nelson Mandela Gandhi or Buddha He is the Chosen One Earl told the magazine He will have the power to impact nations Those were overwhelming expectations Yet Tiger repeatedly said that no one in the world knew him better than his father the man he freuently referred to as his best friend and hero Together they shared one of the most memorable moments in sports history Immediately after Tiger sank his final putt to win the Masters by a record twelve strokes Earl gave him an iconic bear hug In what was the most watched golf broadcast in US history an estimated forty three million viewersalmost percent of all American householdswitnessed father and son sobbing in each others arms as Earl said I love you son Dozens of golf telecasts had similarly ended with the two of them embracing and Earl whispering those same four words But Mike Mohler didnt watch golf tournaments He just wasnt a fan of the game Hed never even picked up a club Still he admired Tiger Woods and he took great pride in digging the elder Woodss grave Using a cemetery map Mohler had located Earls burial lotblocklotgrave right between his parents Miles and Maude Woods Since taking over as sexton inMohler had dugthan two thousand graves Earls would be a lot smaller than most he had been cremated Tiger and his mother Kultida were flying from Southern California with a shallow ten inch by ten inch suare wooden box that contained Earls ashes Mohler was ready for them After nearly an hour of digging he had fashioned a grave that resembled a miniature elevator shaft It was twelve inches long by twelve inches wide and forty two inches deep Using a shovel he scraped away the loose dirt from the sides making the edges ruler straight The next day at around noon two limousines pulled up to an old section of the cemetery Tiger his wife Elin and Tigers mother got out of the first car and Earls three children from his first marriage exited the second Mohler and his wife Kay met them Near the end of the twenty minute ceremony Kultida handed Mohler the wooden box containing her husbands ashes He placed it in the hole and added cement With the family looking on Mohler carefully packed the hole with dirt leveled off the top and covered it with a piece of sod The family then filed back into the limousines andafter a brief stop at Earls childhood homereturned to the airport Days later when word got out that Earl Woods had been interred the local business that produced headstones and gravestonesan outfit called Manhattan Monumentsanticipated an order for a large granite monument They called Mohler but he had no information Neither Tiger nor his mother had left any instructions for a headstone At first Mohler thought the family just needed time to figure out what they wanted Everyone grieves differently he knew But five and then ten years passed and the family still had not ordered a grave marker There is no gravestone Mohler said in Not for him His grave isnt marked at all The only way to tell where Earl Woods is buried is to know where to look for the corner markers buried in the earth You have to have a map to find them In the end Earl Dennison Woods was buried in the Kansas dirt in an unmarked grave No stone No inscriptio.
