GM dumbs Tiger

When I first heard GM was dropping Tiger Woods as a sponsor my first reaction was not a big deal. Tiger has so many people wanting to sponsor him, a company will throw millions at him to put their logo on his bag. But the big picture is GM is not doing well as most companies in the States are feeling the pinch so having a high profile athlete as a sponsor or saving the company in the long run was a no brainer for GM. I'm sure this is happening throughout many facets of the golfing industry and elsewhere. I just feel bad for the guy with three kids and a wife who just lost their job and go out on his favorite score and let off a bit of steam with a game of golf with hi buddies.
