EA is expected to confirm today that it’s moving forward with this month’s scheduled rollout of Tiger Woods PGA TOUR Online, a browser-based golf game that’s been in development for the last year.
While it appears that the flood of accounts from alleged mistresses may finally be drying up, the Tiger Woods saga is far from over. Woods’ marriage is still reportedly hanging by a thread and wife Elin Nordegren could leave him any day - though it now appears that she’ll wait until after the holidays if she is going to do anything at all.
Accenture has dropped Woods outright, and Gillette, Gatorade and Tag Heuer have all scaled back Woods as a company spokesman. AT&T has also made clear that its plans for Woods are in a holding pattern. But one company that has a significant contractual arrangement that no one seems to be talking about is EA Sports.
