The U.S. Open is nearly upon us, so that means it’s time for a new Tiger Woods Nike commercial, right?
With the resurgence of Woods’ game has certainly come the resurgence of his fame, as the world’s No. 1 ranked golfer was also ranked No. 1 among highest-paid professional athletes by Forbes for the first time in years. So, despite a deal with golf’s other primetime star at the moment, Rory McIlroy, Woods is still Nike’s top golf pitchman.
Woods’ newest Nike ad appears to be inspired by a quote from the golfer, “I treat golf as a sport. I let other people treat it like a hobby.” And, indeed, the theme of the ad seems to be that golf is just another sport, as some of Woods’ highlights are superimposed against moments from baseball, boxing and track and field.
