Golf Marketing K(Needs) Tiger Woods

July 3, 2008

I saw an article today in the sports biz section of MSNBC, CLICK HERE, that talks about how golf and the various sponsors that Tiger Woods has are all losing millions of dollars because of Tigers absence.  I knew when Tiger announced his season ending surgery that this was going to shake up the marketing world of golf.  You can see my previous blog entry HERE

As Nike, Gatorade, Buick, EA Sports and others feel the fallout from Tigers surgery the other golfers on the pro circuit are probably glad that their chances of winning have increased drastically.  No disrespect to the other golfers, but I have seen Tiger do his thing too many times to say that not having him on the golf course won’t make a difference.

I found it interesting…I hope you do too

It is blessed in the warehouse by an Anglican or Roman Catholic priest.
