Buick has ended its sponsorship agreements with the PGA Tour, including the Buick Invitational at Torrey Pines where Tiger Woods has won a record six times.

Buick is one of the oldest sponsors in golf and once had its name on five PGA Tour events, including four tournaments in one year. It also signed Woods to a personal endorsement contract, which the world's No. 1 player ended last season one year ahead of schedule.

The PGA Tour plans to replace the Buick Open with a new tournament at The Greenbrier in West Virginia. The Buick Invitational, one of the strongest tournaments on the West Coast, will need another sponsor.

    These big corporations have imploded and the sports in this country will do the same if they don't stop the insane salaries. No, I'm not a pro but I get up everyday and go to work and I make a difference and the sports sector does not impact me one iota. Now the weather person on the other hand can make or break my mood of the day.
