Nike Releases Incredible Ad Following Tiger Woods' Win At The Masters

It's been an incredible comeback story for Tiger Woods.

His win at the US Masters shows exactly how hard work, dedication and a passion can lead to something great.

Nike has been quick to jump on that win at Augusta with a brilliant advert.

The ad explains just how incredible Tigers' win is after overcoming a lot of off-the-course drama. Being a 43-year-old is tough in any sport, so for him to come back again and again is simply amazing.

It also shows footage of Tiger as a small child who said he wanted to beat Jack Nicklaus. People seeing the ad were blown away by its simplicity and emotionality.

"I'M NOT CRYING YOU'RE CRYING," wrote one person.

"Thank you Nike for standing with him when others didn't! Won't forget that ever," said another.

The 43-year-old champion's victory was his first major tournament win since 2008 and his 15th win in golf's biggest four tournaments with a score of 13 under par.

Going into the day, Woods sat just behind the leader Francesco Molinari, who faded away after finding the water on the par three 12th hole.

Woods shot -2 for the day to secure his first triumph around Augusta National since 2005.

Woods - in his iconic Sunday red shirt - managed to emerge from a congested pack of candidates to take victory against the odds. His tee shot on the 16th left him a very short putt to move clear of those around him and, from there, he never took a backwards step.

This is Tiger's fifth green jacket - presented to the winner of the tournament - in total, and cements his (admittedly, already stellar) claim to be the greatest golfer of all time.

Only Jack Nicklaus, with 18 major wins, sits above him. He only needs four more major wins (no short feat we know) and that Nike ad showing the young Tiger Woods will be correct.

This win must be even more special after the time that Woods took out of the game after a series of personal scandals and setbacks as well as severe injury complications.

Only a matter of years ago he was in danger of never being able to swing his clubs again but, following spinal surgery to fix a chronic back complaint, he has reached the summit of the sport in which he is most people's first reference point.

It truly was an incredible moment and one that many will be looking back on in years to come.
