Terms of the deal were not disclosed, although Golfweek magazine reported last month it was for five years and could pay Tiger Woods as much as $100 million, moving him closer to the $1 billion mark in career endorsements.
"There have been some licensing elements to things we've done," said Mark Steinberg, his agent at IMG, who cited video games produced by EA Sports as an example.
"But everything he does with Gatorade is going to be creating new products. It's something Tiger and I and our licensing business have been looking at for some time."

It became obvious who won when Tiger Woods began drinking from Gatorade bottles during the final month of the PGA Tour season, even when the Gatorade product wasn't available at certain tournaments.
