Buick has ended its sponsorship agreements with the PGA Tour,
including the Buick Invitational at Torrey Pines where Tiger Woods
has won a record six times.

Buick is one of the oldest sponsors in golf and once had its
name on five PGA Tour events, including four tournaments in one
year. It also signed Woods to a personal endorsement contract,
which the world's No. 1 player ended last season one year ahead of
schedule.

The PGA Tour plans to replace the Buick Open with a new
tournament at The Greenbrier in West Virginia. The Buick
Invitational, one of the strongest tournaments on the West Coast,
will need another sponsor.
