Tiger is Back!

Tiger Woods is back in action after being out of the PGA circuit and the public eye since November of last year (we all know why, so let’s not go there). What’s interesting to focus on is that Woods is actually playing again. He chose to return to the game and make a fresh start at the esteemed Masters Tournament in Augusta, Georgia. (This afternoon, he officially teed off at 1:42pm.) For Woods, this is his 16th Masters – he’s already won four titles – where, we’re sure, he has high hopes to wear the coveted Green Jacket again.

Throughout this week, Woods practiced with longtime golfing friends in preparation for today’s tee off. The gallery was filled with applause and fans asking him to sign autographs. On Monday, Woods sat down with journalists for an official press conference. Here’s a quick recap of the Q&A:

We especially like Wood’s Masters Collection with NIKE. During practice on Monday and at his press conference, Woods wore a polo shirt with pastel stripes in pink and yellow – made with NIKE’s Dri-FIT fabric technology.

Nike also aired a highly controversial commercial of Tiger on the eve of the Masters, painting a serious portrait of Woods as the voice of his deceased father, Earl Woods, questions his behavior over the past few months.
