Nike unveiled its latest TV spot starring Tiger Woods, and it’s sure to get everyone very riled up.

In the 30-second spot, which debuted one day before Tiger’s big debut at the Masters tomorrow, Tiger looks intently into the camera as a voiceover of his late father, Earl Woods, who died nearly four years ago, asks him three questions.

“I want to find out what your thinking was … what your feelings are, and did you learn anything?”

Unfortunately for Nike , the commercial was filmed on the grounds of the  exclusive Isleworth  Country Club in Tiger’s hugely upscale  Florida community. Well now, it’s been revealed that Tiger launched his pursuit of his then 21 year-old alleged 17th mistress by inviting her to golf at that club. Later that night, after inviting her to a party, he invited her back to his office for a two-hour sex session. Seems to me that having the club be revealed  as another cheating location undermines the whole point of this ad, which was supposed to be part of Nike’s attempt to rehab him!

Now watch the clip, speak your mind, and vote!
