Tiger Woods is reportedly getting back in the sponsorship game.

According to TMZ, Woods shot a commercial for Nike at the Isleworth Country Club golf course not far from where he lives in Windermere, Florida.

Following allegations that Woods had cheated on his wife with multiple women, some sponsors backed away from their longstanding relationships with the golf superstar.

A spokesperson for Nike declined to comment to CNN on whether Woods was filming a commercial. Woods is scheduled to participate in the upcoming Masters Tournament next month.

    "Let he without sin cast the first stone. He made a mistake, get over it!
    If his wife is able to forgive him, than that is all that matters, not his so called fans!"

    Well kinda. He made the same mistake like, no telling how many times, with 13 (known) different women. That's not really a "mistake". That's just, in your face, I don't care about my wife and family kind of crap.

    I don't dislike Tiger because he's a good golfer. They dislike Tiger because he doesn't know how to keep his pants on when his wife isn't around. That has NOTHING to do with his golf skills. As for the women? I have less respect for them than Tiger. They ALL wanted to disrespect Elin. She should take his money and run. She's earned it.

    The out-pouring is just another Michael Phelps drama... i.e. mini-van driving PTA hover parents hate the fact you can be wildly successful and have a vice or two to boot. It shatters the "you have to be absoultely perfect to succeed greatly" mentality parents have been using for years to try to control their over-achieving children into complete obedience.

    Tiger Woods is a tool. Golf is not a sport. And most of all, Nike is one colossal turd, period. Nike represents nearly all that is wrong with corporate America. They are the first to represent punk athletes who have made no contribution to the collective societal good other than to excel at some sport. Additionally, all Nike's junk is made in China, Malaysia, etc. for slave labor wages while it's sold here at exhorbitant prices reaping huge profits. The world would be a better place without the likes of Nike. Boycott them and their ilk. Make a conscious effort to buy American goods.

    I have to agree with Tracy Green....the only reason most people are "mad" is that these atrocities made a white woman look bad. Kobe (accused of rape!) , Shaq, and yes, the great Michael Jordan were/are known to cheat, yet no one is said they should not have been allowed to play their respective sport again....i.e, return to work! You SAY it's because Tiger sold himself as a paragon of virtue, a family man. Really? I didnt know Gatorade "Focus" promoted that. Accenture's ad was the only thing you could say "promoted" Tiger...and that was "Become A Tiger!" slogan in their ads.....

    All of you who burned your Nikes and will not buy Nike again......Thanks!!!! Nike nor the people still wearing Nike products need you !

    Now go and do your drugs, drink your vodka/red bulls, then go home and beat your wife or cheat on your husband. Just because you dont have endoresements doesnt make you a hypocrite!!!

    Casting the first stone has nothing to do with NIKE giving this guy millions to promote their's all about the almighty dollar.

    Whether you think he's been punished enough or whatever, it still stands that he's a "world class" cheater/sicko and I seriously doubt he's changed his ways much. The test will come when he's on the road and away from his wife when the urge strikes...what does he do then?

    Personally, if he fell off the planet tomorrow, it wouldn't bother me a bit. But it might bother NIKE and their money grubbing philosophy of getting as much as then possibly can from the sorry name TIGER WOODS. Yuukkk!!!!!!!

    Let us get some order here...

    The fact of the matter is no one is perfect. Tiger had a lapse in judgement that will affect his life in several ways. The Wood's are a very intelligent couple and will work through their issues and in the end their marriage will be stronger and Tiger will be a better man.

    Additionally, Tiger will probably focus more on his game which will continue to improve. Lastly, at the end of the day he will have a beautiful wife, a great career, two beautiful little kids, a Gulfstream V, a $20 million dollar yacht, a net worth close to $1B, and travel to places most people see in screensavers.

    Don't hate.

    I think he should return to golf without any sponsors. There is no need to draw attention to the companies that support him any longer. "Hey look at us, we support cheaters". He doesn't need sponsor money, just wins at the Majors. I will not purchase anything from a company that supports or endorses an individual like Tiger.

    You are all morons. If you cheat on your wife, have a gambling problem, or are an alcoholic...and you decide to get treatment, which for Tiger was 40 some odd days inpatient and continued outpatient. You don't have to stay home under house arrest. Once you're out of inpatient treatment, it's best to get back to your job and routine. His job is golf....professional golf....and as long as he is on a course, there will be companies jumping on his bandwagon trying to get a few more dollars out of the consumer. His past "routine" and least in regards to his personal life...was pretty disturbing, but he cannot implement his treatment by sitting at home and ignoring the world, and he knows that. Which is why he has to get back to his life, which includes golf.

    Kobe played basketball while his case was still in court...

    So quit acting like Tiger owes you something. He doesn't owe you anything. What he did is disgusting, and I'm not happy he did it....but I hope he gets through this and continues to play golf at the highest level.

    "The Thinker: I dare say, with that mentality, serial killers and war criminals are ALSO famous...should THEY be making advertisements also?"

    Come on...seriously? He didn't KILL anyone. He did what millions of men and women do every day in this country.....cheat on their spouse.

    How come the women in this story aren't bashed as much as Tiger? They know he was married with a child, yet they proceeded to participate. But since he is the one with the $, the people bash him.

    So if a high profile plastic surgeon cheats on his/her spouse, they should lose their license to practice?

    The dude cheated on his wife, it's a personal/family matter, let it stay as it is...a private matter. You people need to worry about your own families and your own spouses.....and in keeping your relationships happy....

    He has an endorsement deal with Nike, but he has to WORK FOR IT...if he sucks on the course, he will LOSE his endorsement...that is his JOB to keep that endorsement. Anyone who does anything at a high level will be rewarded......Whether it is on a golf course or in a factory.

    If we didn't pour so much of our money into sports and entertainment, they wouldn't make as much blame us for these athletes/entertainers and their large salaries.

    Hope Tiger wins the Masters, not because of him coming back, but him fulfilling his destiny as a golfer, and that is to be the greatest ever.

    @Pat – calling Tiger's behavior "a mistake" indicates either a lack of maturity and sensitivity on your part - or a poor choice of words. A mistake is forgetting your house keys or leaving the toilet seat up. Cheating on your wife with "alledgedly" 12 women, saying that you did not think the rules applied to you, is an indication of servere character flaws and a lack of respect for your wife, your kids, and the sancity of marriage.

    Well, his reputation is already tarnished in my eyes. Do I think he should be eternally punished by everyone, no. But he did do a lousy thing that just a public "I'm sorry" can't fix. Once a cheater, always a cheater.

    Not taking anything away from what he did because I know it was wrong and I would never want to be treated the way he did Elin. But at the same time how can you expect him to learn from his mistakes if you don't give him a chance to change them. His life has to continue at some point and we can't get upset everytime he chooses to make it better. He can't pay for what he did everyday of his life from now til forever. At some point he will have to get back in the game and change things. My only point is this is only the beginning of him getting things back to normal so we need to just suck it up and GET OVER IT!!

    This man created a career where he was a role model for children as well as adults. When he became a celebrity, his behavior became public. His behavior should not be excused because he is good at golf. I hope his wife and his previous fans will walk away from him. Cheating on his wife shows that he has no business being a role model anymore and that he cannot act in a responsible manner. C'mon everyone. Turn your back on this loser. Just do it.

    Good comment by jvx of VA. Too true - so many times after women have kids, their husbands become secondary and virtually ignored while the women dote and give all their attention to their "babies." Heck, there's even one commercial on TV where the woman calls her child "the love of her life." Yuck. My husband is the love of MY life. Keep your MARRIAGE first, ladies, and the men won't stray.

    So many people, so many opinions. Let's face it folks, it's none of our business what Tiger does in his private life. Let his wife and him work this out, or not. He owes us nothing. I personally find what he did disgusting, but what does anyone care what I think. He probably shouldn't have gotten married, but it was his choice to make, and his wife's decision whether to forgive him.

As for not being a good role model, there are a lot worse people out there. I don't understand boycotting a company because of him. Look at the House of Representatives.

    In all honesty, Tiger Woods cheating on his wife is not going to stop me from drinking (Gator-Aid). And I was buying NIKEs before he was well known. He is a golfer. And until he does somethng to mess up the sport of golf, he will continue to be the greatest golfer. Everyone fell in love with Tiger because of what he does on the course, not because of his personal life. The personal life is between him and his wife.

    I don't think the problem is with Tiger's promiscuity. I think it is his promiscuity AND being a role model for younger kids. So if Tiger buys Nike, the kids will buy Nike. If Tiger cheats and lies, the kids will think it's okay to cheat and lie. That is the biggest reason he should lose endorsements.

    Why don't people remember that personal life is PERSONAL no matter your status in life. If he was doing chicks on the greens of the back nine then I can see that being news. The media didn't make all this fuss when my uncle cheated on my aunt....where was the media then? We have learned to forgive Clinton and Jordan so let's back off Tiger let him work out his personal life with his wife and God and stop bashing the man for making a living. When Jordan cheated we still cheered for him when he stepped on the basketball court and last I checked he is STILL selling shoes. If Tiger doing Nike commercials bothers you guess what you have the right to turn the channel and or stop buying Nikes and I can promise that it wont hurt either one of you. Charles Barkley said it best " I am not a role model" and he was right some people are just what they are, Tiger Woods is just a great golfer nothing more nothing less and as a parent ( a true role model ) my kids are aware of this.

    She traveled to see him in person at Muirfield several times. Mom passed away quite suddenly on Dec. 3rd, the morning after Tiger admitted to his transgressions. She went to her death being extremely upset with him. Her very last day on earth was spent in a funk and disbelief about what he had done and the huge lie that he presented himself to be. Tiger- you are an ass, a waste of talent. You robbed my Mother of her last day and owe her a sincere apology. See how what you do has real life ramifications? A lesson for us all.

I dare say, with that mentality, serial killers and war criminals are ALSO famous...should THEY be making advertisements also? Just because someone is good at something does not mean they should have unending sympathy from the bleeding hearts who are not considering what this teaches people. Which is that there is NO PENALTY for immorality.

    If you are incapable of negotiating contradictory ideas about people, then you need to conduct background checks on all artists, musicians, athletes, politicians, etc. Start sorting and pitching your books and music.

    While Tiger's personal actions are repugnant, they do not diminish his mastery of golf. (And, boy, do I hate golf.) If he loses his sponsorships, so be it. Don't buy his shoes or sports drink. I hope the love of the game and not ad revenue remain his impetus for playing. Otherwise, he is an even more reprehensible whore, because he will have screwed us all.

    Tiger Woods is loved because of his golf playing and his knowledge of the sport, that's why he is dubbed a role model, not because of who he sleeps with! You can't show me one person who will set their life's morals and values based on a celebrities sexual explorations....people either want to become famous or become a star athlete because of skill or talent, not how many notches you have on your bedpost!

    Oh yes, let's reward this special human being with more praise and respect. ARE YOU KIDDING ME! He is a great golfer! However, he is nothing more than a rich whore chaser with no respect for his wife, kids or fans. If he were any other man he would be called every name in the book, but he is a public figure, so I guess that makes him a better person.............NOT!!!!!!!

    From 1995 through 1997, the then-President of the United States of America repeatedly had ‘sexual relations’ with a 22-year old White House intern, in various places in the White House to include the Oval Office. He then lied to Congress and the American public, on national TV, and absolutely nothing happened to him (I know, I know…the scathing impeachment by the House of Representatives). Now, an entertainer admits to extra-marital affairs and, apropos for Easter Week, the collective opinion is that he should be crucified. HHHHhhhhhmmmmmmmmm…….Me thinks something is amiss. Unless it’s Tiger in ’12, let the kid try to reconcile with his wife and get back on the fairway.

    I love to watch Tiger play golf, but I think he is a repugnant human being. I wonder what his wife and (god forbid) his kids will think when a few years down the road he or they turn up HIV positive because of his terrible behavior. It is obvious that he wasn't particularly choosy when it came to the women he slept with. By many reporls, he didn't have "save sex" with the women he was with. Now, Nike is rewarding his behavior. I wonder what add they'll run if it turns out he has some STD. Just a thought.

    Tiger Woods is the Michael Jackson of golf...he wants to control every aspect of his life, but he isn't able to deal with any public scrutiny. When will these control freaks realize everyone has needs? I have no issues with him wanting to be a player. But if that is what he wants, don't get married and have children. For the rest of their lives, Elin and their children will be exposed to all of the details of his immoral behavior. What was he thinking? Doesn't he have any feelings for those two beautiful children? All of his apologies, etc., are so phony. I don't think he's capable of change, and the real sorrow is his children will pay the price for his duplicity. Dude...MAN UP...right now you are such an incredible joke, that it doesn't matter if you win 200 championships. You will only be remembered in the Hall of Shame.

Because I've driven over the speed limit in my life, I can't judge someone for stealing, raping, or murdering? And to all those people who say he "made a mistake": when does it stop being a mistake and become a continued pattern of reckless, self-indulging behavior that hurts other people? A mistake is usually an isolated lapse, Tiger's shenanigans were ongoing, repetitive, deceitful activities.

His recent rather short interviews convinced me he is deep down a good person. I felt sincerity when I watched the only interview I saw.

    The issue here is not whether he should come back to golf or not, because that clearly is his business as is his personal life. However, it would be nice to have a role model that is either an admitted playboy, like Hugh Hefner for example, or a devout family man. This instead wreaks of what appears to be another session of building a new Amercian 'idol' again... comes back from the ashes of banging women while his wife and 9 month old are at home. It's the transparent short time off at the therapist, televised rehearsed confession and apology, with him 'not knowing when he was coming back', then announcing two weeks later he's 'coming back!'... and now making commercials again? It's more orchestrated image building that is rewarded with more big money by Nike... it only shows just how shallow and superficial the US continues to become.

No one can compares to his golf skill and it doesn't matter how many pros are out there, if you look at the way he played previously and no one can catch on Tiger at all probably until he retires from his golf career. With him playing and people has to put some effort in to win.

    some half-asssed apology will not win over the american people, it will only win over those desparate losers who STILL look up to this clown, or are somehow making a living off him.

    In biblical times, people were stoned for their sins. Nowadays, the media persecutes someone that they feel is guilty.

    I wonder how many of the paparazzi that continue to perpetuate this stoning are free of any wrongdoing?

    My guess is most of them have nothing to talk about.

    It's time to let go of what Tiger did and what he and his wife are doing. Who really cares... Don't we all have enough problems/things going on in our own lives to really care about this? If he's going to do a commercial, then go for it...Infidelity happens in half of marriages, and to those people, they deal with it. Stay together or divorce, it's their choice. Just like Tiger and his wife will deal with it. Frankly I'm sick of seeing this in the news... is this really news??? Health care, the ecomony, the war in Iraq, that's news...

    His sins may be disgusting, but they are between him, his family, and his God. There isn't a person in this world who hasn't fallen short, who hasn't needed forgiveness. Stop focusing on the private faults of one famous person and put a little effort into fixing our own private failings. The world will be a lot better off if we all did this.

    Why is everyone so angry and pissed at Tiger? All he did was get some @$$.... and yes his wife is absolutely gorgeous, but maybe she wasn't putting out. Either way, that's his business to deal with... not everyone out there that judges him. There are plenty of celebrities that have cheated on their spouses, but of course you all still love them the same.

    Let he without sin cast the first stone. He made a mistake, get over it!
    If his wife is able to forgive him, than that is all that matters, not his so called fans!

    Good for you Tiger. Get back to life and show all those blue noses that you have a personal life and don't owe anybody any explanations. And kudos to Nike for standing by their man. Oh and "freddy", therapy is spelled therapy, not theropy.

    how is someone suppose to really learn from mistakes if they are constantly rewarded in return. I think some time and theropy long theropy is in order here for anyone in this situation to completley heal.
