Tiger’s Shadow

In May of 1999 when my son Jonathan was newly out of college, he stumbled upon the opportunity to be Tiger’s ‘shadow’ in this Nike Golf commercial.  A while back I came across the one minute video of the original commercial and posted it in this blog.  He’s the one in the striped shirt.

Recently, thinking about the upcoming warm weather (will it really ever happen in Michigan?) I was checking out YouTube videos for golf and came across this shortened version, now thirty seconds.

Ironically, at the recent Bayhill PGA event this year, Jonathan had the opportunity of being one of the reporters (he’s now with GolfChannel.com) to stick the mike in front of Tiger to answer a question after his round.  Fascinating how their paths have crossed over the years.
