Golf Digest drops Tiger Woods’ column

New York: Tiger Woods will no longer be writing a monthly column for Golf Digest, ending a long standing sponsorship that adds to a growing pile of dropped endorsements for the golfer.

“We have decided it’s now time for a break,” Woods said in a joint statement with Golf Digest on Thursday.

The decision comes on the heels of Procter & Gamble Co’s Gillette brand not renewing its contract with Woods at the end of December.

Accenture, AT&T Inc, PepsiCo Inc Gatorade have all ended sponsor deals with the golfer.

Electronic Arts, however, announced this week it was planning to release a “Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12” video game”

Golf Digest, owned by Conde Nast, has a circulation of 1.65 million and has had a relationship with Woods since he won the 1997 Masters, a spokesman for the magazine said. Terms of the partnership were never disclosed.

Woods’ last column will appear in February’s issue.
