No More Tiger Woods’ Scandal Magazine Covers?

Usweekly That may be the case because The Huffington Post reports that sources with access to weekly magazine sales numbers told their reporter that figures for last week’s issues of In Touch, OK! magazine and US Weekly, which all featured Tiger Woods on their covers, were flops. The only successful cover? People magazine, which featured Woods’ wife, Elin Nordegren.

Even though we’re relieved of this outcome, we’re still wondering why magazines featuring Tiger’s scandal didn’t sell better on the newsstands? There are a few theories: the Huffington Post throws out the race card; other celebrity magazine editors speculate readers didn’t connect with Woods’ and his family because the golfer is generally so private and everyone tired of the news of yet another celebrity allegedly cheating.

In related news, Golf Digest magazine is distancing itself from Woods. The golf magazine has suspended Woods’ monthly instructional articles while the superstar is on leave from professional golf.
