Tiger Woods Not Surprised Sponsors Bailed; Has Plan to Get More Sponsors

Apr 5, 2010  •  Post A Comment

There were few money questions during Tiger Woods’ press conference today, but kudos to a reporter for asking this one:

REPORTER:  "…When [the companies you had sponsorship deals] dropped you — some of them pretty quickly, others took a while — what was your thought about them dropping you? And….what do you tell those sponsors who may want to support you about why they should get behind you?"

TIGER WOODS: "OK. You want me to answer the first part or second part? That’s a long-winded one there, bro. The first part is, do I understand why they dropped me? Of course.

You know, I made a lot of mistakes in my life, and I totally understand why they would do that.

…[H]opefully I can prove to the other companies going forward that I am a worthy investment. That I can help their company, help their company grow and represent them well. I felt like I was representing companies well in the past, but then again, I wasn’t doing it the right way, because of what I was engaged in."
