General Motors is asking Tiger Woods for its cars back, after an agreement with the golf star ended two weeks ago. A contract between Woods and GM’s Buick brand expired in 2008, but the controversial golfer was allowed access to GM products, including the Cadillac Escalade SUV that he so famously crashed in his Florida neighborhood. A clause in the contract that allowed him access to those vehicles expired on December 31st.
The Escalade, which also had its windows smashed by Woods’ wife Elin Nordegren, will reportedly be fixed and sold. Woods also reportedly has a Buick Enclave (which he is shown posing next to, above) for personal use.
Since the Tiger Woods scandal first broke, numerous sponsors have separated themselves from the world’s richest golfer including AT&T, Accenture and Gillette, while Tag Heuer is limiting its use of Woods in their ads, while Gatorade has put a hault on a special line of Tiger Woods-branded drinks.
