Golf fans may not favor Tiger Woods come-back but Rolex doesn’t really care what you think! Earlier this month at the Frys.com Open, Tiger Woods agent announced that his client just signed a new deal with Rolex as an ambassador for the brand.
It’s been 2 years since Woods was dropped by AT&T, Accenture, Tag Heuer, Gatorade and Gillette because of all the events that unravelled due to Tiger’s infidelity but that is not stopping Rolex from seeing the big picture:
Swiss-based Rolex said it was paying tribute “to the exceptional stature of Tiger Woods and the leading role he plays in forging sport’s global appeal.”
“Rolex is convinced that Tiger Woods still has a long career ahead of him, and that he has all the qualities required to continue to mark the history of golf,” the company said in a statement.
Woods has 14 majors and 82 wins worldwide, although none since he won the Australian Masters on Nov. 15, 2009. He fell out of the top 50 in the world ranking for the first time in 15 years.
Even though Tiger’s relationship with Rolex is still new, you will not see Rolex rep’d on the green. Woods agent explains that Tiger never wears a watch when he plays golf but his Rolex is tucked away in his bag.
Guess He Got His Mo-Jo Back… Tiger Tiger Tiger Woods Ya’ll!!!
