Woods Golf Digest end 13-year relationship


KAPALUA, Hawaii – Tiger Woods has one less endorsement deal, ending his 13-year relationship with golf’s biggest magazine.

Golf Digest announced Thursday the mutual end to a relationship that began at the 1997 Masters. It was the second-longest endorsement for Woods behind Nike.

Jerry Tarde, the chairman and editor-in-chief of Golf Digest, said in a statement that they agreed to stop Woods’ articles in the monthly magazine, which mainly were instructional tips.

Golf Digest has a circulation of 1.65 million.

Woods’ agent, Mark Steinberg, said the contract ended last year and they could not agree on new terms. Steinberg said with the media going more digital, Golf Digest was asking for more time than Woods was willing to give.
