*General Motors is the latest company to get out of the Tiger Woods business.
The American car company now joins Gillette, AT&T, Gatorade, Accenture and Tag Heuer in severing ties with the golfer in the wake of his sex scandal. In addition, Woods is no longer allowed to drive GM vehicles for free.
GM’s official endorsement contract with Woods actually ended in 2008, but the driving deal had been extended until Dec. 31, 2009, Buick spokeswoman Dayna Hart tells USA Today.
The end date was set before the Thanksgiving crash and Woods’s subsequent “indefinite departure” from golf, which he announced on his Web site last month.
Woods had been allowed to keep several vehicles, including the Cadillac SUV and reportedly a Buick Enclave crossover, for his personal use, according to USA Today.
