Golf’s not always on my radar, but golf topics sure have been lately. Tiger is back and hover crafts are in the less distant future. Since Augusta is around the corner, I thought I would give a Golf themed post a shot (or maybe that should be a drive or better yet a putt).
The first topic is Tiger Woods. Tiger has been on his game. He has proved that “winning takes care of everything” in his latest Nike ad…well kind of. A lot has been written about this ad, including if it is even ethical, but winning has helped Tiger regain the number 1 ranking, cover of Sports Illustrated, and his Nike sponsorships.
Also, Tiger announced his own relationship on his Facebook page before the paparazzi, or just about anyone else, could figure it out. I think Tiger would rather be the one to break news about his relationships rather than seeing them in the tabloids.
I believe that winning has taken care of a lot for Tiger. He is in the news again for his golfing ability… and of course some reactions to the previously mentioned ad and new relationship.
America likes a comeback story, and Tiger has a lot to come back from. He is still such a polarizing person that vague advertisements that the mention of Tiger Woods, “winning” and “everything” will be controversial. Maybe this is what Nike wanted though?
I will be interested to see how Tiger does in Augusta.
While he is looking to defend his title, he has also been showing some style. I have always thought driving a golf cart was fun. I can’t even imagine how great it would be to drive this around a course.
Until next time,
