Second company ends sponsorship deal with Woods

6:54 pm on 14 December 2009

The giant management consultancy firm Accenture has ended its sponsorship of Tiger Woods, saying the golfer is no longer the right representative.

Woods has been engulfed in a media storm since a disturbance outside his house two weeks ago.

He has since admitted being unfaithful to his wife.

Woods is taking an indefinite break from golf to try to save his marriage.

Accenture is the second sponsor to react to the news with Gillette having already said it would cut back Woods' role.
