Ever since the Nike ad where Tiger Woods bounces the ball on the club, we’ve been enthralled by funny golf commercials.

Some are better than others, of course.

Some of the more inventive ones feature unusual golfers such as Darth Vader, a baby, and a club head cover.

I’m not crazy about the ads that use cheap shots like a guy getting hit by a ball in a sensitive area or ads featuring trashy women. #9 is an ad that was new to me and the humor is great from beginning to end.

Golf companies have been in a silent competition for years to see who can film the funniest commercial ever. We all benefit, of course, since there have been some great ads. Here are some of our favorites from recent memory.

Tiger Woods – Nike Golf

Tiger Woods is one of the most bankable pitchmen of all time — golf or otherwise. Some of his earliest gems were with Frank the talking head cover in ads for Nike Golf and Golfsmith.

One of Woods’ most recent commercial hits was the “No Cup is Safe” campaign with Rory McIlroy:

But the most memorable Tiger ad of all may have been the one that resulted in everyone bouncing the ball on the face of their wedges for years to come.

The story goes that the creative types working behind the scenes of this one had a completely different concept in mind for the day’s shoot, only to marvel at Tiger’s ball control, and ended up filming and producing this instead…


Any commercial that’s able to use “Shankapotomous” will rank highly among the golfing set. Mix in a baby talking smack about investing and the rules of golf, and you have the greatest golf Super Bowl ad of all time.


So you show up for your regular Sunday foursome to find that you’re one man short. Just your luck, you get a pairing with Darth Vader. It could happen, right? Sure! Well, moving to the dark side is one thing, but using the force to win a skin is quite another.
