Tiger Woods isn’t just a golfer- he’s the very best. In fact, because of his new announcement to take a break from the sport to focus on his family, many PGA Tour sponsors are upset.
Still, there are many (including the PGA Tour itself) who support his decision. Sports editor Dave Zirin does his best to break down how this will affect the sport of golf for the next year.
Tiger Woods, if you didn’t already know, is the first billion-dollar athlete. His brand can be seen everywhere from Dubai to South East Asia. So by tainting his image, not only has he potentially lost his wife, but also a lot of money.
Many fans say that they’ll still watch Tiger play if he decides to come back, but it’s safe to say that the Tiger Woods brand is no longer what it used to be.
