Good to have him back?

On my way to Finland where I am due to speak at the Finnish Federation’s Annual General Meeting I, as usual, pick up a copy of the Daily Telegraph. After the 15+ pages of football there is a small piece about the World Golf Championships at Doral this week. Mark Reason writes about how Tiger is back to dominate and he also comments on the latest Nike add that is featuring Tiger’s comeback. The add (see below) is basically about how the guys on tour are enjoying it when Tiger is not there and when he steps in the locker room their smiles go away. Reason questions what these players are thinking about doing a commercial like this that so explicitly highlights another competitor’s superiority. Of course this is only a commercial but it could just as well be true. I have seen it myself on the driving range at the Deutsche Bank Championship a few years ago. Tiger walked on the range and everybody stopped. That is being a few shots ahead even before the tournament has started!

 I have to admit though, nobody can play Carl Pettersson like Carl Pettersson!
