Woods-GM vehicle agreement over

Car giant General Motors has announced that its agreement with Tiger Woods regarding the player's free access to its vehicles is over.

Woods used to endorse GM's Buick brand until 2008, but the American car manufacturer had allowed the fallen player to keep several of its vehicles on loan.

A spokesman for the company said the agreement ended on December 31.

The world's leading golfer has lost a series of endorsement contracts after a car crash outside his Florida residence on November 27 fuelled allegations that the star was cheating on his wife.

The rumours also caused the top-ranked golf player to take a break from the game.

The GM spokesman implied the ending of the agreement was not related to the allegations, saying that the vehicle arrangement had been previously scheduled to end on the same date.
