Woods and Finchem discussed player marketing rights, commercial use of player images and the Internet. Woods' Williams World Challenge will be held nearby this weekend.
'It was important for us to meet face-to-face to gain a clearer understanding of each other's business objectives,' said Woods in a statement released by the PGA Tour.
Finchem said, 'I'm delighted we're discussing the specifics of his business strategy, because a significant mission of the Tour is to provide our members with a strong marketing platform.'
Both agreed the dialogue would continue.
