1Golf : Game maker Electronic Arts sticks with Woods .
2Electronic Arts Incorporated is sticking with embattled golfer Tiger Woods and plans to roll out an online game featuring the world number one this month .
3EA Sports President Peter Moore said Woods is `` still one of the greatest athletes in history '' despite the personal scandal that enveloped Woods at the end of 2009 .
4`` Our relationship with Tiger has always been rooted in golf , '' Moore wrote on a company blog on Monday .
5`` We did n't form a relationship with him so that he could act as an arm 's length endorser .
6Moore also noted EA 's extensive work over the past year in developing the new game , `` Tiger Woods PGA Tour Online . ''
7EA would n't comment on whether plans for a new edition of the popular `` Tiger Woods PGA Tour '' console game would be affected .
8US telecoms giant AT&T and Accenture , the Dublin-based technology , management and outsourcing consultancy , both dropped their sponsorships of Woods in December .
9Their moves came after Woods was embroiled in a sex scandal , admitted cheating on his wife and decided to take an indefinite break from competitive golf .
10Other sponsors - Swiss watchmaker Tag Heuer and razor-blade giant Gillette - have stopped using his image for the time being .
11Sports equipment giant Nike , which pays Woods an estimated 40 million dollars a year , has issued unqualified support for Woods .
