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.
