GENEVA: Swiss watch maker Tag Heuer says it will continue its association with Tiger Woods despite the golfer’s alleged infidelities.

Company spokeswoman Mariam Sylla, said on Monday the sponsorship is unchanged because Woods remains the world’s best golfer and Tag Heuer does not care about his private life.

Sylla says Tag Heuer has great respect for Woods’ performance in the sport.

She spoke a day after global consulting firm Accenture Ltd. became the first major sponsor to announce it was cutting ties with Woods.

Woods has announced an indefinite leave from the sport to work on his marriage.
