McIlroy, Woods star in emotional new Nike ad
Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy star in an inspirational video released by their main sponsor Nike to coincide with this week’s Masters in Augusta, Georgia.
The spot is titled “Ripple” to represent the ripple effect Jack Nicklaus had on Woods and Woods had on McIlroy.
As you will see in the video it chronicles a young McIlroy admiring Woods on TV and then eventually in person.
There’s shots of McIlroy (played by an actor) chipping balls into his mother’s washing machine and being with his father sitting up late supposedly in the Holywood Golf Club clubhouse admiring Woods before the two of them eventually competing together in real life.
