GM-Tiger Woods to end partnership

Company looks to reduce costs
DETROIT - November 24, 2008 GM said in a statement Monday it is looking to reduce costs and that the star golfer also wants more personal time as he expects his second child.

Woods has endorsed GM products around the world and has been closely tied to its Buick brand in the U.S., Canada and China.

GM's vice president for North American sales, Mark LaNeve, says the separation is the result of discussions earlier in the year and is not related to the company's campaign for $25 billion in loans from the federal government.
