Tiger Woods Swings And Misses The Cut For PGA Championship

Filed under: Tiger WoodsGolf

Tiger Woods swing

It seems like everyone has moved on following the Tiger Wood's infidelity scandal, EXCEPT for Tiger Woods!

His ex-wife is dating a new man, a slew of sponsorships have dropped him for more marketable athletes, and his ex-caddie (that he fired) has found another championship golfer to work for, all while Tiger's career continues to spiral downward.

Most recently, Tiger has missed the cut for the 2011 PGA Championship!

On Friday, the once dominate golfer packed up his clubs and headed home after shooting a 10-over 150 at Atlanta Athletic Club.

We're not rooting against Tiger in any fashion, but he doesn't seem to be getting out of this career slump any time soon. Better luck next time, Tiger!

Tiger Woods Loses Tag Heuer Sponsorship

Filed under: Tiger WoodsGolf

Tiger Woods tag Heuer

Tiger Woods picked up a new sponsorship from a Japanese heat rub not too long ago, which made it appear as if companies were beginning to look past his infidelity scandal. However, looks can be deceiving.

The golfer has been DROPPED by Swiss watch maker Tag Heuer, which may have been his most valuable sponsorship worth an estimated $10 million.

After being dropped by other companies including AT&T, Accenture, Gillette, and Gatorade, Woods is now at about a $25 million sponsorship loss.

He's still in pret-ty good shape though considering he is estimated to be worth about half a billion dollars!

Tiger Woods Gets A New Endorsement Deal!

Filed under: Tiger WoodsGolf

Tiger Woods heat rub

Tiger Woods, who was dropped by AT&T, Accenture and Gatorade after his infidelity fiasco, is getting some endorsements back!

In Japan at least.

The pro golfer has become the face of Japanese heat rub used to relieve muscle pain. The company behind the rub, Kowa, has said:

"Kowa Company Ltd. is pleased to announce the use of Tiger Woods as the image character of Antiphlogistic Analgetic Vantelin Kowa series"

No word on what he'll be doing in commercials for the product, but they will begin to air in mid-July in Japan.

Not that he NEEDS anymore money, it looks like Tiger may be back on the upswing after his disastrous year in in 2010.
