Endorsements coming back Tiger Woods’ way

Tiger Woods is starting to get sponsors interested in him again for endorsements.

He finally has found a sponsor for his golf bag.

It was announced recently that Woods had sign an exclusive endorsement deal with Fuse Science, Inc., a sports nutrition company based in Florida.

This is the second endorsement deal in five weeks for Woods. He previously agreed to be a spokesman for Rolex.

The deal is an endorsement for his golf bag. But the deal won’t kick in until the Chevron World Challenge which starts on December 1 in California.

Woods has not had a sponsor on his golf bag since AT&T dropped him almost two years ago when the extramarital affairs scandal rocked the world. He has had his TW logo on his bag since that time.

Reds beat Royals 11-5 as Gomes belts two three-run homers

MEGASPORTSNEWS.COM GAME COVERAGE

CINCINNATI, OHIO — Reds left fielder Jonny Gomes who is starting to become popular with the fans, cracked two, long three-run homers in his first two at bats for a career-high six RBI’s, leading the slugging Cincinnati Reds to an 11-5 win over the pesky Kansas City Royals Saturday night on Scott Rolen bobblehead night.

The Reds now lead the NL Central by 1 1/2 games due to Arizona defeating the St. Louis Cardinals, 7-2 out in the Valley of the sun, Phoenix.

Jonny Gomes had angered some fans by misjudging a three-run double off the bat of David DeJesus in the second inning which allowed the Royals to go up 5-4 briefly.

Hot-hitting Brandon Phillips had three hits, including his eighth homer of the season, to extend his hitting streak to 15 games-Cincinnati’s longest of the season and the longest current streak in the majors.

The Reds overcame and survived another shaky start by Johnny Cueto to snap a four-game losing streak against Kansas City. But Cueto took the win extending his winning streak to 6 games, covering 9 games to go to 6-1.

Right-hander Brian Bannister (6-4) was pounded by the NL’s number offense for 11 runs-10 earned- on 10 hits with two walks and two strikeouts while throwing 77 pitches, 45 for strikes. He saw his personal five-start winning streak come to an end.

By allowing 3 home runs last night, Bannister has allowed 14 home runs this season tying him for 2nd in the American League with Rich Harden of Texas. He has allowed at least 1 homer in 11 of his 13 starts this season.

Bannister said that he made a big mistake of trying to pitch in the humid, 86-degree weather on an empty stomach.

The Reds opened the scoring with four runs in the first inning, with Phillips hitting his eighth homer of the season and Gomes hitting his eighth homer.

The Royals, always a pesky team who can definitely hit the ball, bounced up off the mat with five runs in the second inning, one on Bannister’s double to right-center field and three on David DeJesus’ bases-loaded double to left field that lined over the head of Gomes after he made the initial mistake of taking a step toward the infield and then had to retreat backwards and leap for the ball.

Gomes put the Reds back on top at 7-5 in the third with his second homer of the game and 12th of his career against the Royals, more than he has hit against any other team. The eighth multihomer game of his career prompted the crowd to cheer for a curtain call, which he obliged.

Gomes leads the Reds with 47 RBI’s, four short of the 51 he drove in all of last year abd 12 shy of tying the career high of 59 he set with Tampa Bay in 2006.
