It's been a long time coming but EA Sports has finally parted company with Tiger Woods as the face of its golf games.
Yes, after 14 years being the face that was in the game, "EA Sports and Tiger Woods have also made a mutual decision to end our partnership, which includes Tiger's named PGA Tour golf game " said EA's Daryl Holt.Eurosport
reports that, "Tiger's video games have grossed almost half a billion pounds, with Tiger's cut of that estimated at as much as £10 million a year."
The split is, of course, amicable and mutual... even though Tiger was making £10,000,000 a year.
The official line is, "EA Sports and Tiger Woods have also made a mutual decision to end our partnership, which includes Tiger's named PGA Tour golf game.
"We’ve always been big fans of Tiger and we wish him continued success in all his future endeavours."
Nothing to do with Tiger's profile having been damaged by his affair, or his form dropping or his name recognition being less than it was, or that this is the earliest EA could have severed ties?
