Tiger Woods GM-owned Cadillac Escalade, post crash – Click above for high-res image gallery

According to a report from USA Today, Tiger Woods no longer gets free cars from General Motors. No worries, we're pretty sure Tiger can afford to pay for his own ride anyway.

The news, attributed to Buick spokesperson Dayna Hart, comes as a number of companies like Tag Heuer and Accenture have canceled advertising contracts with the star golfer. GM, though, indicates that the free car agreement was scheduled to end on December 31st and therefore isn't necessarily a result of Woods' November 27 accident outside his Florida home that led to his admission of marital infidelity.

Woods hasn't been a spokesperson for GM since the golfer's contract ended in 2008, but the automaker had reportedly agreed to let Woods keep his Buick and Cadillac vehicles for an additional year. As previously reported, the 2009 Cadillac Escalade Woods was driving will be repaired and sold.

      Let me get this straight. Tiger gets his ride taken away for screwing a couple of hot chicks.
      So why do all those GM execs still get free rides, when they screwed millions of GM employees, and retirees.

      Looks like GM could have saved money on crash test dummies.

      Tiger is a good kid from our block just that his Dad kept him lock away too much and was not allowed to mindle until he passed away. He's a kid eating sugar for the first time now he has cavities he learnt his lessons the hard way. He'll be on top again even stronger. Trust me.

      This is what Obama and the clowns @ GM don't get! The country is suffering, GM gets bailed out with taxpayer $$$ AND Tiger Woods who makes $100 MILLION a YEAR gets free cars even AFTER his contract expires. You don't want to know how many cars GM execs AND their family members still get.

      Ever wonder why the freaking automotive industry went broke?? It damn sure wasn't the last President or anything like that. It was because of their dumb asses giving away cars to celebrities and charging normal people out the ass for new cars and they wonder why more people were buying used cars instead of their overpriced pieces of crap. I know for a fact that if you add it all up it's not getting more expensive to build 'em either. We have more technology at our disposal now so the price should be less. There's many reasons I will never buy a GM product and this just adds to it.
