Tiger Woods is back as the world's number one ranked player and his critics are not happy. Woods captured his sixth PGA tour win in the last two years winning Monday at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.
Woods has been ranked number one for 624 weeks during his career, Greg norman holds the second spot for the most weeks ranked number one at 331.
Tiger has rebuilt his life and career over the last two plus years. It major redemption time for Woods, who has had his share of detractors since his divorce.
Nike put out an ad on twitter and facebook using Tiger's words "Winning takes care of everything". The backlash was swift. Some saw the ad as an inappropriate comment on the golfer’s private life.
Tiger's private life is none of mine or our buisness. Nike responded with Tiger has always said he competes to win. When asked about his goals such as getting back to number one, he has said consistently winning is the way to get there. The statement references that sentiment and is a salute to his athletic performance.” Amen
Woods is third highest paid athlete. The public loves and wants a winner. And on the golf course there is no one better.
