    Tiger Woods hits his tee shot on the second hole during the third round of the 110th U.S. Open at Pebble Beach Golf Links on June 19, 2010 in Pebble Beach, California.

    Tiger Woods’ late father, Earl Woods, would have been “disappointed” at his son’s infidelity.

    That was the opinion of  Earl Woods Jr., half-brother of the famous golfer, when he gave an interview to KSAZ Fox 10 in Phoenix, according to People magazine.

    "He would probably want to know how he's going to fix it,” said Earl Jr. about his dad, who died in 2006. “You're grown enough to get into this mess; how are you going to repair it?"

    Earl Jr. added that Tiger’s previous relationships cost him his family. "He'll never have the same relationship with his kids. There's always a possibility that [Elin, Tiger’s former wife] will go back to Sweden. That distance with the kids will tear him up."

    As for growing up in the Woods household, Earl Jr. remembered it as discipline. "Tiger had his duties he had to perform. My dad would have him do practice rounds in the afternoon. They would be out there for two and three hours. Most of that was fun time, because he was so young, but my dad would slip in some instruction." He described Tiger as a “nerd” and “computer geek” when he was a kid.

    Tiger’s half-brother said that the golfer will be productive after the dust settles. "Once he gets back on track, he'll be right back to where he was, if not better."
