(Newser) – AT&T is the latest sponsor to ditch former one-man cash register Tiger Woods, joining Gillette and Accenture in backing away from the golfer amid swirling allegations of infidelity. The telecom had previously graced Woods' golf bag, and co-sponsored a tournament in July with Woods as host. AT&T had no comment on how much the endorsement deal was worth, or, er, official word on why it was dropping Woods.
