Tiger Woods and Golf Digest Break Up


NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Another long-term partner of Tiger Woods is saying goodbye to the beleaguered golfing great.

After13 years of working with Tiger, who contributed instructional advice articles to the monthly magazine, Golf Digest is terminating their partnership.

Their partnership first began during the 1997 Masters and has been the second-longest partnership for Woods -- second only to Tiger's relationship with Nike ( NKE), which has remained supportive of Tiger throughout his public crisis last year.

Others weren't so forgiving; sponsors such as AT&T ( T), Accenture ( ACN), PepsiCo's ( PEP) Gatorade brand, P&G's ( PG) Gillette unit jumped ship soon after his marital indiscretions became exposed.

The Associated Press reports that Tiger's agent, Mark Steinberg, says the breakup was mutual, as the two couldn't see eye to eye on new terms after their contract expired last year.

The agent, according to AP, said that Golf Digest was asking more time of Tiger than he had been devoting to the magazine, as the magazine increasingly went digital.

Golf Digest has a circulation of more than 1.6 million.
