  Tiger Wood took a break from the Masters yesterday to defend his creepy Nike ad as "very apropos" "It what my dad would say," Woods said of the muc-criticized ad, which features his own silent image in black and white while his deceased father, in an old recording, asks, "Did you learn anything?" "It's amazing how my dad can speak to me in different ways even when he's long gone," Tiger told  reporters. "Any son who lost a father who meant so much in their life, I think, would understand the spot. Losing a parent really hurts. Tiger father was a big part of his life on and off the golf course. Tiger father spirit calling him for goodness. I see Tiger want to do right in his life now.
