For years now, it has been a guarantee that when I open my monthly issue of Golf Digest, tips from Tiger on all aspects of the game were a featured section. Thursday, digest came up with a fairly phony excuse
for why they couldn’t renew his endorsement deal:
…they couldn’t agree on how many hours he should devote to the job.
Golf Digest, with a circulation of 1.65 million, announced Thursday the mutual end of a relationship that began at the 1997 Masters. He made his debut in the magazine in June that year, and the endorsement had been his second-longest, behind Nike.
“We appreciate the insights Tiger has provided to our readers,” Jerry Tarde, chairman and editor-in-chief of the publication, said in a statement. Woods’ articles mainly were instructional tips.
We all know the real reasons. It seems like Tiger has some serious motivation to show that he’s a changed man and a changed golfer.
