Gillette and Tiger Woods will end their relationship on December 31st, our friends at AgencySpy report. Gillette spokesperson Michael Norton told USA Today that Woods is one of a number of athletes, including soccer stars Thierry Henry and Lionel Messi, who are being cut as the Gillette Champions campaign comes to an end in early 2011. The campaign launched in 2007.
Other athletes, such as New York Yankees player Derek Jeter and tennis star Roger Federer will continue with other deals.
Woods’ other endorsement deals include Nike Golf, EA Sports, and Tag Heuer. According to the story, if Woods keeps his remaining endorsements and doesn’t sign any others, he could still earn $55 million to $60 million next year. And he hasn’t won a tournament since 2009.
