Nike airs Tiger Woods TV ad featuring late father

NEW YORK

The ad is to air on ESPN and the Golf Channel just one day before the Masters begins.

In the stark, black-and-white ad, Woods looks directly into the camera without speaking while a recording of his late father is heard, speaking about taking responsibility.

"Did you learn anything?" Earl Woods says.

Woods is returning to golf after a leave that followed revelations of infidelities and a stint in rehab.

Nike Inc. is one of the few sponsors to stand by Woods during his troubles.
