Accenture ends sponsorship deal with Tiger Woods

Current news updates, World current newsA major sponsor for Tiger Woods announced on Sunday that it is dropping in light of recent controversy swirling around his personal life.

Accenture, a management consulting firm, said on its site that "given the circumstances of the last 2 weeks ... the company has determined that he is no longer the right person for its advertising.” The move ends a sponsorship arrangement that lasted six years.

One more major sponsor, Gillette, said Saturday it was "limiting" Woods' role in its marketing programs to give him the privacy to work on family relationships.

Woods announced on his own site on Friday that he is taking an "indefinite break" from professional golf. The golf phenomenon has won three U.S. Open titles and the Masters tournament and the PGA tournament each four times, said in the statement that he will spend his hiatus with his people.
