Accenture Really Wants Nothing to Do with Tiger Woods

After officially announcing on Sunday that it’s dropped Tiger Woods as its prime endorser, Accenture is apparently going to even greater lengths to dissolve any association whatsoever with the golfer.

Not only has the consulting company switched its homepage image from Woods to some unknown ice skating types, but Accenture had its staffers clean out its NYC office of any merch related to Woods. Although the company’s 177,000 global employees weren’t asked to toss their own Tiger collectibles away, Accenture spokesman Fred Hawrysh tells the NYT that when it comes to branded merchandise, “Our intention is to ensure we are no longer using it internally or externally.”

For a guy who was in 83% of their ads over the past six years, it seems like Accenture is taking some pretty drastic steps to cut Woods off. Still, thanks to eBay, you can obtain Accenture-branded Tiger items such as magazine ads and even a bib so the memory remains. Advantage Tiger.
