Accenture drops Tiger as family woes mount
Tiger Woods in an Accenture ad.
Troubled golfer Tiger Woods lost one of his biggest endorsement deals Sunday, the same day a report came out saying child welfare workers visited his home in Florida.
Accenture, the consulting firm, said it has ended its deal with Woods, 33, whose sordid personal life has produced a drumbeat of salacious tabloid headlines, with women emerg-
ing almost daily to dish on their affairs with the No. 1 golfer.
Also Sunday, sources told Radar Online that officials from the Florida Department of Children and Families, accompanied by police, spent about an hour at the Woods home.
There was no word on the precise nature of the visit, but Woods and his wife, Elin Nordegren, allegedly had a fight on the night of the infamous Nov. 27 car crash, and some reports have said Nordegren may have roughed him up.
It is standard for the agency to visit homes where there has been suspected domestic violence, Radar reported. Neither Nordegren nor Woods, who have two children together, has
been charged criminally.
