Nike releases emotional commercial celebrating Tiger Woods' Masters win

Mere minutes after Tiger Woods won the 2019 Masters for his 15th major victory, Nike was ready to celebrate.

One of the few companies to stick with Woods over the last decade, Nike released a sentimental video about the 43-year-old’s unexpected win.

The ad showed video from Woods’ past major victories — and shortcomings at majors — mixed in with other clips from his career.

“It's crazy to think a 43-year-old who has experienced every high and every low and has just won his 15th major is chasing the same dream as a 3-year-old,” the ad read, before showing a video of Woods as a child saying, “I'm gonna beat Jack Nicklaus.”

Of course, there’s something a bit odd about talking about Woods’ comeback considering how many of the “lows” were self-inflicted. But regardless of whether or not you sympathize with the golf legend, winning a major at his age after going winless for 11 years is an incredible athletic achievement.

Nike has likely had this commercial ready to send for the last several years, but it was worth the wait since it hits you right in the feels.
