    I think this commercial is wonderful! Very deep and sincere!
    Then you showed the one from Jimmy Kimble and it was also wonderful in a completely opposite direction!
    He is still a great golfer and needs to get back to the game head on!!!!!! oops. His personal life is just that! Let the chips fall where they may.

    As the mother of a high school golfer, I am intrigued to comment on the NIKE ad....Up until now, I have felt that Tiger's situation is just what it is.....He is an adult, and experienced golfer...he knows how to avoid the "hazzards and traps" on and off the course....but everyone makes a bad shot, now and then.....What concerns me is the use of this issue in the NIKE ad. Nike would have been better off to avoid the issue and just continue with the sponsorship if that is what they wished.....I do not buy NIKE products because Tiger does or doesnt use the products.....However, this ad just tells me that Nike is trying to apeal to all views, by keeping the endorsement of Tiger and scolding him during the ad at the same time....If NIKE had an opinion, they should have stated it, without using his deseased father's voice, or not stated an opinion at all.......I am disappointed in NIKE, for not standing on their own judgement on this one.
