    Tiger Woods New Sponsor

    He no longer is pitching for Gillette as you might have guessed by the beard thingy he had going on, but according to the AP, Tiger Woods has a new sponsor.

    A Japanese heat rub is his latest endorsement and commercials will begin airing over there next month.

    Must restrain.....hehe

    NAGOYA, Japan (AP) — Tiger Woods has been hired as a pitchman for a Japanese heat rub used to relieve muscle and joint pain.

    "Kowa Company Ltd. is pleased to announce the use of Tiger Woods as the image character of Antiphlogistic Analgetic Vantelin Kowa series," the Nagoya-based company said in a press release.

    The TV commercial with Woods will debut nationally in Japan from mid-July.

    Woods has not played since May 12, when he withdrew after nine holes from The Players Championship with knee and Achilles injuries. He said on Tuesday he had no planned timetable for his return, and it would only be when he was 100 percent.

    Boston Red Sox pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka, who is sidelined after elbow reconstruction surgery, has also promoted the Vantelin heat rub on Japanese TV.

    It isn't the first time Woods has promoted products in Japan. He also appeared in TV commercials for canned iced coffee in the late 90s.

    Hmmm, used to be the face of Gatorade and other prominent companies and now we're talking Heat Rubs....seems about appropriate the way things have been going for him.

    Oh dear! Will he put the logo on the bag? I can't imagine it'll go on the hat or shirt sleeve... I think he's not too proud to take the money, but I think he might be too proud to display it anywhere other than via commercial I think.
