Minutes after Tiger Woods made the ultimate comeback and clinched his fifth win at Augusta National on Sunday, Nike released an advertisement that commemorated his climb to the top.
The ad touched on Woods’ early success and the pitfalls and low times of his career, including the significant back injuries and surgeries he went through.
“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 three-year-old,” reads a message in the clip.
It then ends with a very young Woods telling a home camera: “I’m gonna beat Jack Nicklaus.”
He is now one step closer. With 15 titles under his belt, Woods is just three major wins away from tying Nicklaus’ record and four away from surpassing him.
His victory at Augusta ended an 11-year wait for a major title, after he claimed 14 wins between 1997 and 2008.
