Gillette Shaves Tiger Off of Spots; Accenture Decides Road to High Performance isn’t Wooded

Dec 14, 2009  •  Post A Comment

In two moves that could cost Tiger Woods million of dollars, Accenture said it would part ways with the beleagured golf star, and Gillette said it would limit Woods’ marketing presence.

According to the New York Times, "In a telephone interview, the Gillette spokesman Damon Jones said the move amounted to ‘a timeout’ for Woods, who has been at the center of a worldwide scandal for the past two weeks after being linked to affairs with numerous women."

The report says Woods’ Gillette deal pays him $5 million a year and has a year to run.

  1. Gillette goes by the slogan “The Best a Man Can Get”, but they have distanced themselves from Tiger Woods as he takes his break from golf. Sports blogs listed on Dozensports.com said it was to ‘support his desire for privacy’, but in reality it’s probably to protect their brand. When it comes to the media, Tiger is now getting ‘the worst a man can get’.

  2. Damn right, Tiger is getting the ‘worst a man can get’, because he deserves it. I’m glad Gillette will not be using him in their ads.
