Nike revives classic Tiger ad

 

By Jonathan Wall, PGATOUR.COM Equipment Insider 

Even though Tiger Woods doesn't play a part in Nike's latest commercial, it's nearly impossible to watch the 30-second clip and not think of the top-ranked player in the world.

The ad for Nike's 20XI and One RZN golf balls features, among others, Rory McIlroy, Nick Watney and Kyle Stanley performing various trick shots with a red RZN core. While the ball and the faces in the ad may be new, this isn't the first time Nike's done a trick shot video to this catchy tune.

The background music was actually used in the iconic Nike commercial that features Woods bouncing a ball with his wedge before smacking it out of the air. The ad is considered to be one of the greatest golf commercials ever produced.
