Tiger Woods Parts Ways With Golf Digest

2010 brought Tiger Woods a divorce from his wife and 2011 opens with a break from his work as “playing editor” for Golf DigestKeith Kelly reports the Condé Nast mag had been paying the 14-time major tournament winner $1 million per year to contribute a monthly column and exclusive photos.  Tiger has been involved with Golf Digest since 1997 and penned a monthly feature titled “Tiger Tips.”

Magazine chairman and editor-in-chief Jerry Tarde says the split with Tiger is an amicable one:

Golf Digest and Tiger Woods have mutually agreed to stop his monthly bylined articles.  His last regular column will appear in the February 2011 issue of Golf Digest, at which time he will also leave the masthead. We appreciate the insights Tiger has provided to our readers.

Golf Digest suspended Woods’s column for a few months during his much publicized sex scandal, however this time around Tiger is looking for a permanent exit so he can focus entirely on his golf game.  Hopefully Woods can survive without that extra million Condé was shelling out to him each year, something tells us he will find a way to survive.

Tiger Woods Scandal Provides Journalistic Conflict of Interest

golfdigest.jpgMark Soltau is a contributing editor to Golf Digest, but that isn’t enough to pay the bills these days. In addition, he also serves as the editor of Tiger Woods‘ Web site, TigerWoods.com, a role that is now causing some whispers in light of the enormous boom on Woods’ Web site following his admission of marital infidelities.

Says Golf Digest editor in chief Jerry Tarde, “Mark Soltau is a contributing editor to Golf Digest, not a staff writer. Mark does not write feature articles for the magazine, so I don’t consider his work for TigerWoods.com a conflict.”

It seems that Mark would only edit pieces for Golf Digest that were bylined by Woods himself, which seems a little disingenuous on Golf Digest‘s part. With parent company Condé Nast making so many staff cuts, they somehow still have room to keep Tiger Woods’ personal editor on the pay roll. Even more bad luck: Digest this month features a front-page picture of Woods and President Barack Obama, an unfortunate case of bad timing that serves to highlight just how out of sync the monthly magazine world can be with current events.
