GENEVA – Swiss watchmaker Tag Heuer has ended its 10-year commercial relationship with Tiger Woods, and expressed hopes the former top-ranked golfer can “overcome his difficulties.”

Tag Heuer had stopped promoting Woods’s image in the United States in December 2009, weeks after revelations about his marital problems began to emerge.

“We are confident that Tiger will eventually regain full trust with the public, and that his huge talent and mental strength will help him overcome his difficulties,” Tag Heuer chief executive Jean-Christophe Babin said in a statement.

“We wish Tiger all the best for the future endeavors in golf, with new business partners, and in his private life.”

Tag Heuer said it had enjoyed an “exemplary” partnership with Woods which had been “very beneficial to both parties.”
