New Tiger Woods ad won't stir any controversy

Tiger Woods shares the spotlight in a soon-to-be released commercial for EA Sports' Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 video game.

The world's top-ranked golfer, on the heels of his fall from grace, was the focal point of a Nike commercial featuring his father's voice that was aired during his return to play at the Masters in April. The new EA Sports ad takes a much lighter approach, including a pep talk from legendary player, coach and broadcaster Mike Ditka, a flyover of jets, cheerleaders and trick shots by pros.

Woods shares the cover of the game with young Irish sensation Rory McIlroy. Also featured in the commercial are tour players Rickie Fowler, Ian Poulter and Edoardo Molinari.
