Per GM, Woods wanted out so he could have more personal time, but the company also said the relationship was axed for cash.
Mark LaNeve, General Motors North American vice president of sales, Service and Marketing said in a release: "Tiger has been a great friend to GM and a fantastic asset through the
years helping to bring consumer awareness to many new GM products. In light of the news coming out of Washington," LaNeve added, "this decision is the result of discussions that started earlier in
the year and the timing of this agreement with these other activities is purely coincidental."--Karl Greenberg
