By Stephen Hennessey

After Tiger's well-publicized affairs, the 14-time major champion lost major endorsements with companies such as Gatorade and AT&T. Golf Digest's relationship with Woods also ended, but Nike stuck with the embattled star, and has been using him in its commercials as frequently as ever in 2013.
