Accenture ends sponsorship of Tiger

Sunday, December 13, 2009 - 2:59pm

Global consulting and outsourcing firm Accenture is ending its sponsorship of Tiger Woods, saying the golfer is "no longer the right representative" after the "circumstances of the last two weeks."

Accenture's announcement Sunday marks the company's first statement since allegations of Woods' infidelity surfaced in recent weeks.

The company is the second key sponsor of Woods to pull away. Gillette said Saturday that it won't feature Woods in its ads for an unspecified period of time.
