EA Sports decide to part company with Tiger Woods following a 15-year business partnership.

EA Sports have confirmed that their business relationship with world number one golfer Tiger Woods has come to an end.

The company has been alongside the 14-time Major winner for the last 15 years of the 'Tiger Woods PGA Tour' computer game series, but have not renewed a fresh contract.

"We had an incredible run," Woods's agent Mark Steinberg told ESPN.

"Outside of [John] Madden, you would be hard pressed to find a sports figure that meant as much to a video game company as Tiger meant to EA.

"But times are changing and EA had to re-evaluate the partnership and frankly so did we."

Tracking company NPD Group is said to have revealed that the game franchise sold £479m.
