Woods’ half-sister opens up about her relationship with the golfer

Woods has always been known as the caretaker of his kids, Sam and Charlie. But it isn’t the same with his half-siblings Kevin, Earl Jr., and Royce. Woods and his two brothers Kevin and Earl Jr. have the same father – Earl Woods. Kevin was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2009 and has to sit in a wheelchair. Earl Jr. said that Kevin’s condition was “60 to 70 percent worse” and that he would not be able to “keep his house much longer.”

As a sign of gratitude, Woods bought a house and gifted it to Royce. But after Earl Woods’ funeral, none of the siblings have been able to contact Tiger Woods.
