Nike Stands by Tiger

"Tiger and his family have Nike's full support." read a company statement released Monday.

Tiger Woods and his wife Elin Nordegren have been besieged by paparazzi and reporters looking for insight into the golf pro's one-car crash in the wee hours of Friday morning. Even Florida Highway Patrol is still waiting to have a word.

But the 33-year-old 14-time major winner doesn't have to answer to executives at Nike, which has a $40 million endorsement deal with him. "Tiger and his family have Nike's full support. We respect Tiger's request for privacy and our thoughts are with Tiger and his family at this time," Nike said in company statement Monday.
