Woods signs eye deal

Woods signs a spokesman deal with eye company

Tue, 15 Feb 2000

Woods signs eye deal. Tiger Woods thought so much of the company that performed corrective eye surgery on him last October that he agreed to be its spokesman.

Woods signed an endorsement earlier this month with TLC Laser Eye Centers Inc, the company that performs LASIK surgery. Woods had the surgery in October last year, during a four-week break after the Ryder Cup, then went on to win the last three events of the year.

Woods has worn contact lenses throughout his career causing him problems when allergies kicked in during blustery days. He also said it was difficult to gauge long putts, but that the eye surgery allowed him to get a clearer view on the course.

“Now that I’m normal, one of the things that appears to me is the slopes are bigger,” he said in October after the surgery. “Objects are bigger. The hole is bigger, ball is bigger, clubs are bigger.”

With new eyes, what can we expect of him now?
