Bridgestone broke ties with American golfer Bryson DeChambeau on Tuesday.
The decision comes in response to DeChambeau's decision to leave the PGA Tour last month for the Saudi-backed LIV Golf Series.
"The PGA Tour is an extremely important part of professional golf,
And Bridgestone has a sports marketing relationship with this highly visible series of tournaments."
Bridgestone said in a statement to GOLF.com.
"Given that Bryson DeChambeau will no longer participate in these events,
Bridgestone and Bryson have agreed to end their brand ambassador partnership.
DeChambeau has been one of Bridgestone golf's most prominent faces since his arrival on the PGA Tour in 2016.
He signed a long-term support extension with the brand in 2020.
Despite the loss of DeChambeau, Bridgestone still has a stacked roster of sponsored golfers, including Tiger Woods,
Fred Couples, Jason Day, Lexi Thompson and Matt Kutcher.
DeChambeau also lost his sponsorship deal with Rocket Mortgage in June.
The 28-year-old golfer's pocket isn't getting worse, though.
His 4.5-year deal with LIV Golf is reportedly worth north of $125 million.
