Tiger Woods faced a difficult stretch of months following his exploding sex scandal. Sponsors were distancing themselves from the golfer left and right. Accenture ended their relationship with Woods, Gatorade discontinued its Tiger Focus beverage, and Gillette dropped Woods from its marketing. Indeed, one study estimated that the toll of Tiger's scandal reached $12 billion.
One sponsor decided to stand by the embattled golfer. EA Sports announced in early January that it was moving forward with a new Tiger Woods online golfing game.
More than a month later, a preview video for the game has been released. (Scroll down to watch.) While the video is largely unremarkable, one interesting message pops up midway through the clip. "GOLF LIVE" appears in large text accompanied by the phrase "NEVER PLAY ALONE."
It is notable that the promo video says "never play alone," because a flurry of reports indicate that Woods himself rarely played alone. Indeed, he has been linked to more than a slew of women. Among them are two porn stars, one of whom may have worked as an escort and boasted of their "amazing" sex (NSFW) links.
Another, Jamie Jungers (PHOTOS), spilled details about their "wild" and "crazy" sex, and claims she slept with Tiger the night his father died. Rachel Uchitel (PHOTOS), the vivacious New Yorker who allegedly stole Tiger's heart, also reportedly fueled his bizarre sex fantasies.
Tiger's sex fantasies were called "not normal" by former Playboy model Loredana Jolie (PHOTOS), who alleges that Woods had sexual encounters with men.
The game, Tiger Woods Online, is expected to release later this year. Scroll down for the video.

Jamie Jungers (PHOTOS) says she and Tiger had "wild" and "crazy" sex against a wall. She also claims to have slept with Woods the night his father died. Jungers, who allegedly once worked as a stripper, parlayed her newfound fame into jobs pitching vodka and an auction web site. She also appeared on the Today show and Dateline.

Loredana Jolie, a Playboy model, was allegedly "one of [Tiger's] favorites." She is planning a book that will spill the beans on Woods' alleged sexual encounters with men.
Theresa Rogers has been described as a "cougar" who allegedly boasted that she taught Tiger "everything he needed to know to be a great lover." She reportedly conceived a baby while she was seeing Woods, but an article suggests she believes the father is a Serbian basketball player she was also seeing at the time. According to another article, Woods told Rogers that he only married Elin Nordegren to boost his image. The 40-something Rogers may have negotiated a payoff in exchange for her silence.
