With Tiger literally out of the game, will his endorsements stick around? Gatorade, another one of Woods’ high profile supporters, downplayed dropping his drink by explaining that it was a long-decided strategic move to make way for other products.

Swiss watchmaker Tag Heuer, who recently pulled their Australian advertisements highlighting the golfer, echoed Gatorade’s explanation saying the move had nothing to do with the current scandals.
