Nothing worse than a bad ad, nothing better than a great one. Love this new short film/commercial from Nike Golf that that's chilling and emotional in the best kind of ways.  A fantastic "passing of the torch" from one modern great to the next. Watch below...

Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy also commented on the whole thing with some great lines.

“As a kid, I looked up to Tiger. When I first saw him on TV, I remember being completely enamored by the energy he brought to the sport. His will to win. His determination. His fight.” - Rory McIlroy

“I’ve been in that same situation. Growing up, Jack was my idol. My first recollection of The Masters was 1986, when Jack won. I remember him making a putt at 17 and lifting that putter up. Fourteen years later at the 2000 PGA Championship, I got to play with and against him – someone I looked up to.” - Tiger Woods

“It’s been an incredible journey for me, going from massive fan to competitor. To think that not too long ago I was that little boy watching him on TV to where I am now. It’s been a cool journey and I’m very lucky I get to compete with and against him, because he inspired me as a kid and he inspires me now. He’s the best player I’ve ever seen.” - Rory McIlroy

“It’s neat because I’ve been able to be a part of different generations of competitors. Now I’m competing against the younger ones. It helps me train a little harder, because these guys are athletic." - Tiger Woods

All in all, a fantastic job of marketing from Nike Golf and their agency, Wieden + Kennedy.
