5 years after the infamous extramarital scandal that ripped him of grace and respect in recent years, Tiger Woods is reportedly foraying into next chapter of his career, with the goal of second billion dollars.
Although Woods have been frequently tortured with injuries in recent times yet the 38-year-old former #1 is steadily getting his fitness back and has startled everyone once again with his free swing at Hero World the previous week. However, nobody would deny that his golf was pretty rusty and he would still have to make a whole lot of improvements, though that hasn’t stopped the experts on Golf betting at bookmaker Williamhill.com from making him one of the favourites to hold the #1 spot come the end of 2015.
Off the golf course, Woods had a fiscal improvement with a tie up with new prime sponsor of the tournament & very soon he would be inaugurating his plush Bahamas resort where he is one of the business partners.
“The 2nd billion would be right there for Tiger”, stated Neal Pilson, the President of CBS Sports. 5 years back, in 2009, Tiger was the 1st athlete ever to reach up to $1 bn mark in his career earnings, as per one of the Forbes reports that was issued a couple of months prior to the disclosure of his scandalous personal life.
“That is long gone”, Pilosn continued. “That’s over. His very personality, his contacts, looks, the remaining skills & the very emotional bond which people still nourish for Woods is quite eminently marketable.”
Tiger, whose famous pursuit of Nicklaus’ 18 majors record has come to a halt since his winning of 14th back in 2008, revealed his grandest endorsement tie in 5 years. This is a 4-year contract with India’s Hero MotoCorp. The endorsement pact would be paying him $8 mn per year.
“Woods would go on working hard for his comeback yet both deep competition and age would make the win tougher for him”, said renowned sports business author Mr. Andrew Zimbalist.
