Golf Digest acknowledged on Wednesday that it would be suspending Tiger Woods’ monthly golf articles in its magazine. Woods has been the magazine’s “Playing Editor” for years.
“Golf Digest has had a long-standing relationship with Tiger Woods to provide instructional articles for the magazine, and we do not have any plans to change that,” Golf Digest spokesman Bret Hopman said in a statement provided to CNBC. “We respect Tiger’s decision to take a break from professional golf and focus on his family; Tiger’s bylined instructional articles will not be published during his time away from the game.”
The New York Post, which first reported this story, said it was not known whether Woods’ compensation for the articles would be suspended.
