Orlando, Florida December 18, 2009 - Central Florida's largest and most exclusive premium cigar retailers is offering a lifetime supply of cigars and a $100,000 endorsement deal to Tiger Woods, bucking a trend set by several of the troubled golfer's current or former sponsors, including Accenture, Gatorade and Gillette.
"Tiger Woods is the greatest golfer of all time and, although we do not condone his or anyone's alleged extramarital affairs, nothing pairs better with golf than a premium hand-made cigar," said Jeff Borysiewicz, president and founder of Corona Cigar Company.
According to Borysiewicz, Woods has frequented Corona Cigar in the past accompanied by his long-time friend Charles Barkley, the National Basketball Association's former all-pro power forward.
"Who are we to judge? We welcome Tiger to our stores any time and are quite serious about the sponsorship offer," Borysiewicz said.
There has been no word from Woods regarding Corona Cigar's proposal.
