Golfer in negotiations for another deal elsewhere.
After the recent announcement that Tiger Woods and EA Sports are parting company, the golfer's agent has confirmed that the sportsman is in negotiations with another company regarding his video game rights.
Agent Mark Steinberg confirmed the negotiations to ESPN, and added: "We had an incredible run. Outside of [John] Madden, you would be hard pressed to find a sports figure that meant as much to a video game company as Tiger meant to EA. But times are changing and EA had to re-evaluate the partnership, and frankly so did we."
EA has retained the PGA Tour license, and will continue without the face and name of Tiger Woods as part of the package. In recent years, notably since Woods' turn in the media spotlight, the iconic golfer has had to share the cover of the game with other athletes. Who'll adorn the next box remains to be seen.
