Nike, Gillette pledge support for Tiger Woods

Posted on

While Tiger Woods has withdrawn from his own golf tournament, this weekend’s Chevron World Challenge, and cancelled a press conference scheduled for today, his corporate partners continued to offer statements of support following Woods’ car accident on Friday morning. Nike, which has a nine-figure contract with the star golfer, said in a statement that “Tiger and his family have Nike’s full support. We respect Tiger’s request for privacy and our thoughts are with Tiger and his family at this time.” Procter & Gamble, which features Woods alongside tennis pro Roger Federer and soccer star Thierry Henry in its “Gillette Champions” campaign, announced that “Tiger Woods remains a part of our overall marketing plans for Gillette,” and confirmed that the company had made no advertising adjustments for its television commercials over the past weekend.
