Golf Digest is suspending an advice column penned by No. 1 -ranked putter Tiger Woods as the embattled sportsmans takes a break from the green to recover from an image-shattering sex scandal.
Golf Digest has announced that the golfer will not write his usual monthly pieces for the magazine during his professional hiatus. The publication pictured Woods and President Barack Obama on its latest cover before a scandal broke that linked the married father of two to at least 14 “Other Women.”
“Golf Digest has had a long-standing relationship with Tiger Woods to provide instruction articles for the magazine, and we do not have any plans to change that,” the magazine said in a statement. “We respect Tiger’s decision to take a break from professional golf and focus on his family. Tiger’s bylined instruction articles will not be published in Golf Digest during his time away from the game.”
Tiger Woods has been a contributing writer for Golf Digest since turning pro in 1996.
