(Newser) – You’d think Tiger Woods would be eager for any sponsorship he can get right now, but apparently he still has standards. The Irish gambling outfit Paddy Power says the scandal-plagued golfer has turned down its $75 million sponsorship offer. But the company says it “remains keen” to sign Woods and will soon sweeten the pot with an “enhanced” offer.
