There go your rollover minutes, Tiger!
AT&T is officially clicking off on their endorsement deal with Tiger Woods. The phone company announced the split in a brief statement today, Dec. 31, saying that they “wish him well in the future.”
That future, unfortunately, is looking grim for the golfer, at least when it comes to his sponsorship deals. Not only has he been dropped by AT&T, he was also cut off by Gillette and Accenture, while Swiss watchmaker Tag Heuer said it would “downscale” Tiger’s appearance in their ads.
Although he now stands to lose major endorsement deal bucks, it isn’t just Tiger’s wallet that will be hurting. The cell phone company won’t be sponsoring Tiger Jam — an annual charity event in Las Vegas that raises money for his Tiger Woods Foundation — anymore either!
On the bright side, one of Tiger’s other main sponsors, Nike, is still ‘just doing it’ with the golfer. The athletic brand has stood firmly by him since his image was tarnished in the wake of multiple extramarital affairs.
Not the best birthday present for Tiger, who turned 34 yesterday, Dec. 30, is it?
