PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Procter & Gamble Co. will not renew its endorsement deal with golfer Tiger Woods at the end of the year, adding another name to the list of companies that cut ties with the golfer after last year’s revelations of marital infidelities.
NEW YORK (AP) — Tiger Woods’ humbling return to the public eye, from his televised confession to a winless season on the golf course, was voted the sports story of the year by members of The Associated Press.
THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — Those streaks of good play from Tiger Woods keep getting a little longer.
In one of his most complete rounds of the year, Woods missed only two greens and putted for eagle four times Thursday on his way to a 7-under 65 for a one-shot lead over U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell and Rory McIlroy in the Chevron World Challenge.
MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — The dark sedan backed into a spot next to the clubhouse at the Australian Masters, trunk open, waiting to whisk Tiger Woods to the airport. Lingering behind the car was a friend who was still wrestling with divided loyalties — to Woods and his former wife.
They approached each other, awkwardly at first, then shared a quick embrace and quiet words.
SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) — Tiger Woods broke par in the PGA Championship, cause for celebration Thursday.
It wasn’t as good as Bubba Watson and Francesco Molinari of Italy, who handled the breeze and bunkers at Whistling Straits and wound up atop the leaderboard at 4-under 68 among those who finished the first round.
Then again, it wasn’t nearly as bad as what some were expecting.
Even after the fog lifted along the shores of Lake Michigan, no one was sure what they would see from Woods. The answer came early, with three birdies on his opening holes to — get this — put his name atop the leaderboard.
Tiger Woods has not yet entered the British Open, but organizers expect him to try to become the first player to win the title three times at St. Andrews on the tournament’s 150th anniversary.
Woods is one of five players to have won the Open twice at the Old Course — taking the last two majors played there in 2000 and 2005 — and returned to competitive golf recently at the Masters after a long layoff following a sex scandal.
Out of golf for five months until the Masters, Tiger Woods is waiting only two weeks to tee it up again.
Woods announced Thursday he will play the Quail Hollow Championship, which begins April 29. It will be his first time playing at a tournament where tickets are sold to the general public since his spectacular downfall from a sex scandal.
The shots. The fist pumps. The roaring galleries at Augusta National.
Tiger Woods played as though he’d never been away.
Returning from a five-month layoff and trying to rebuild his reputation after a sex scandal, Woods quickly showed his game was still in good shape Thursday at the Masters.
Another day at Augusta National brought Tiger Woods closer to the very reason he came to the Masters.
He turned his head from side to side so he could make eye contact with fans as he walked off the green. He looked more at ease as he tried to make good on his pledge to be a better person.
He looked like the same Tiger Woods, head down as he walked along the first fairway at the Masters, no one suspecting the jangled nerves he felt from taking his golf public for the first time since his private life unraveled.
One fan called out, “Welcome back, Tiger.”
Tiger Woods arrived without warning on a lazy Sunday afternoon at the Masters.
He offered a playful jab when he greeted two reporters he had not seen in five months, acting as though nothing had changed. He then strolled onto the new practice facility at Augusta National and stopped to chat with Paul Casey.
Sponsors who stuck by Tiger Woods are ramping up to profit from his return to the golf course.
Upper Deck Co. will sell memorabilia like signed red shirts with price tags upward of $1,800. Electronic Arts Inc. has a new browser-based version of its Tiger-themed video game coming out next week. And Nike Inc. reportedly has a TV commercial featuring Woods in the works, though it won’t confirm that.
Tiger Woods will speak before he plays in the Masters.
Woods is scheduled to hold his first press conference in nearly five months at 2 p.m. on Monday, April 5, according to a tentative interview schedule that Augusta National released Wednesday.
