Nike had a new ad ready to go as soon as Tiger Woods won his fifth Masters on Sunday, capping an amazing comeback with his first major tournament win in 11 years. The 52-second spot Nike tweeted on Sunday looks at different stages of Woods' career and says "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," Fox reports. The emotional ad ends with the young Woods declaring "I'm gonna beat Jack Nicklaus." The goal seemed "virtually impossible" two years ago, but the Sunday win makes Woods a 15-time major champion, putting him within three wins of Nicklaus' 18-win record, Golf Digest notes.
