Washington, Jan 14 (ANI): General Motors has become the latest company to end its endorsement contract with defamed golfer Tiger Woods.

GM has joined the ranks of Gillette, ATnT, Gatorade, Accenture and Tag Heuer, all of which have dropped Woods.

In addition, Woods- whose string of affairs came into limelight after he backed his Cadillac Escalade into a tree- may no longer drive GM vehicles for free, reports People magazine.

GM's official endorsement contract actually ended in 2008, but the driving deal had been extended until Dec. 31, 2009, Buick spokeswoman Dayna Hart told USA Today.

The end date was set before the Thanksgiving crash and Woods' subsequent "indefinite departure" from golf, which he announced on his Web site last month.

Woods had been allowed to keep several vehicles, including the Cadillac SUV and reportedly a Buick Enclave crossover, for his personal use. (ANI)
