Details on Her Parents, Siblings, and Family
Royce was born in a family of multiple ethnicities. Her great-grandmother was of mixed race because of which even the uncle and aunts of her father had a wide range of skin tones.
Due to the different skin tones, the family even had their inside joke of having a Chinese ancestor.
Royce was born as the only daughter of Earl Woods and was the youngest out of three kids that Earl had with his first wife, Barbara Gary.
Her father married her mother in 1954 and had two sons, Earl Jr. and Kevin, and a daughter, Royce, with her. Despite having three kids, the couple divorced in 1968.
After the divorce, Earl married his second wife, Kultida Punsawad, while he was serving in Thailand. With Punsawad, he had the half-brother of Royce, Tiger Woods.
The couple decided on the name Eldrick, which started with the initial Earl and ended with the initial Kultida.
However, later they gave him Tiger as a nickname to honor Lieutenant Colonel Vuong Dang Tiger Phong, an officer in the Republic of Vietnam Army and a dear friend of Earl.
Now, the youngest son of Earl and the half-brother of Royce is a professional golfer known by his nickname throughout the world.
And all the credit for his success goes to Earl, who was the one who introduced golf to Tiger at a very young age.
Earl himself started playing golf at the age of forty-two. Though benign an average player, he was intimidated by the game and even taught it to Tiger, who was not even two years old.
Earl taught Tiger himself for the first five years and even made him a child prodigy. But, after that, he sought professional training for his son.
While growing up, Tiger grew up under the care of his father and later joined the Stanford Golf Team while studying at Standford University.
While studying in Standford for two years, he stayed in her house of Royce in California and was close with her.
So, when he turned pro, he brought a house for her in San Jose to pay her back for her kindness.
Besides having Tiger Woods as her family, Royce also has another renowned golfer in her family.
Her niece Cheyenne Woods, the daughter of her eldest brother, Earl Jr., is also a renowned figure in women’s golf.
