It was a long and successful 27 years for Tiger Woods. Well, Nike was with the golfer throughout that journey, up until a while back. Moreover, he had even gone ahead to launch his own brand, Sun Day Red, as well. But it appears as if the golfing legend still hasn’t let go of his connection with the iconic Swoosh logo.

A video was shared on his Instagram page not too long ago showcasing Woods and Jason Day acting in a commercial together. However, as soon as it was uploaded, their fans spotted two little ‘Swooshes’ on their clothes, leading to the community erupting in chaos.

In the post shared on his Instagram handle, the two golfers were spotted acting in a Bridgestone advertisement for their new golfing gear, or more specifically, their golf ball. Mr. T shared the same with a caption: “When golfers lose their focus, their minds wander. New MindSet from @bridgestonegolf can help!”

However, the 15-time major champ and Day had both left the iconic label. While the former created Sun Day Red, the latter jumped to Malbone Golf. The golfer’s partnership with Nike was worth around $100 million and marked the first high-profile exit of the calendar year.

The video, interestingly, did not find the community in good spirits. Just seven hours after posting it, many took to their Instagram pages to share their comments under the post. Some came forward and dubbed the two professionals as nothing short of crazy, as they commented, “Crazy to post this NOW that both (you and JD) are not with Nike anymore.” Well, another follower agreed as they replied, “Wild,” all the while agreeing to the former.

Meanwhile, there were fans who just wanted to know one thing from the Hall of Famer. Well, unsurprisingly so, the supporter went ahead and asked him if the partnership that ended would remain as it is as they commented, “Back to Nike?”

Interestingly, some followers couldn’t believe the fact that Woods was spotted again with the iconic Swoosh, even though it was something that might have been recorded earlier. But even so, comical assumptions were quick to arise as a fan commented, “Is tiger even there? Cardboard cut out? It could be separate footage of him yelling 4!”

One golf enthusiast also pointed out how this would be very fascinating if the video was shot after the two split with Nike. They also subtly hinted at the unknown future, all the while commenting, “Interesting to see Tiger & Jason in Nike apparel if this commercial is new.”
