ORLANDO, Fla. — Tiger Woods says he's staying with his agent.

Mark Steinberg, who has been managing golf's biggest start since 1999, did not renew his contract with IMG two weeks ago and no longer is with the company. Woods had his choice of staying with IMG or going with Steinberg.

The answer came Monday on Twitter. Woods posted: "Staying with Mark Steinberg. Total confidence in him. Excited about the next stage in my professional life. Fond memories of Mark McCormack."

What remains to be seen is whether Steinberg signs with another management company or starts his own. Whatever the case, Woods will be going with him. Woods had been with IMG since he turned pro in 1996.
