NEW YORK (AP) — Maybe winning doesn’t take care of everything.

Nike is causing a social media storm with its latest online ad showing a picture of Tiger Woods overlaid with a quote from him, “Winning takes care of everything.” Woods has used the phrase with reporters since at least 2009 when they ask him about rankings.

The ad, posted on Facebook and Twitter, is supposed to allude to the fact that the golfer recovered from career stumbles to regain his world No. 1 ranking on Monday, which he lost in October 2010. But some say it’s inappropriate in light of Woods’ past marital woes.

It’s the latest controversy for Nike, which has recently had to cut ties with disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong and sprinter Oscar Pistorius because of separate scandals.

  4. You really make it appear so easy with your presentation but I in finding this matter to be actually something which I feel I’d never understand. It sort of feels too complex and very large for me. I’m looking forward to your subsequent put up,

    I have to assume that there was nothing else to write/blog about, right?

    Who cares what some think about the ad, or Tigers words being inappropriate?
    Stop this foolishness and write about his success on the course. Let us know how he plays so well and maybe some of us would be golfers could learn something.
    There is nothing wrong with the ad. He is right, winning does take care of everything, and he meant it in the world of golf/sports, not in general terms to cover everything in life.
    STOP the foolishness!
