Tiger, the rebrand Add to ...



It's part of the game.




Phil Knight, Nike chairman





Poor Tiger Woods. This week Nike said they were sticking by their man, with Phil Knight dismissing the star golfer's indiscretions as "a minor blip." But with most of Tiger's other sponsors (and apparently his wife) flying away like our own golf balls when we hit the links, he's watching his potential earnings evaporate from a billion to mere tens of millions. So when we got a PR pitch the other day from a foreign exchange company offering to make him their spokesman, we figured there must be many companies out there whose values align with the prowling Tiger. Think of the possibilities for endorsements from these companies!
