Tiger Woods' new Nike commercial

Tiger Woods and Nike have released a new commercial featuring the voice of Tiger's father, Earl Woods:

Tiger, I am more prone to be inquisitive, to promote discussion. I want to find out what your thinking was, I want to find out what your feelings are, and did you learn anything.

While some have criticized Tiger for hiding from the controversy ignited by his sexual indiscretion, I've been glad to see him address it head on. After taking some private time to sort through personal issues for a couple months, he has come out over the last two months and talked about the issue and has admitted unequivocally that he was wrong and at fault. This latest commercial is a great commentary on the issue, personal responsibility and the role of family.

We all make mistakes, but how we take responsibility for those mistakes speaks to our character. I'm sure all the Tiger haters will find a reason to attack him for it, but my respect for him is growing again.

Let the Masters begin.
