No actually to his point he is not wrong. He mentioned his swearing..using that one particular word..which is a point I brought up as well. He lost Buick over the cheating scandal. Every time he swore he was fined ten bucks and asked not to do it again.Nope. You’re wrong here.
Tiger was bigger than the game of golf for a long time and yes he got away with a lot, but even with that, when he got into trouble, Buick dropped his bag deal with him (he signed with Monster Energy). I’m not sure if he lost any other deals.
It’s happened before, that also. Fuzzy Zoehler lost all his deals for the fried chicken remark Tiger wouldnt forgive him and hung him out to dry.
I’m sure there are a ton of other guys who’ve lost deals for doing or saying the wrong thing.
This isn’t a cancel culture thing, sorry. JT let a word slip out of his mouth that his sponsor found offensive. Rather than deal with the aggravation, they dropped him. That’s their prerogative.
