In his signature red shirt and black shoes with the Nike “swoosh” logo, the 43-year-old came back from a series of setbacks to claim his fifth Green Jacket on Sunday.
It ended an 11-year major title drought.
“A win for a high-profile endorser is a clear win for the brand,” Nomura Instinet analyst Simeon Siegel said.
Nike celebrated his victory by posting an ad on its website titled “Tiger Woods: Same Dream,” which has received nearly 500,000 views on YouTube in less than a day.
President Donald Trump praised the win, tweeting: “Love people who are great under pressure. What a fantastic life comeback for a really great guy!”
Nike and Woods forged a partnership that dates back more than two decades through good times and bad publicity.
The brand already has a celebrated pool of endorsers, including tennis star Serena Williams.
Basketball phenom LeBron James, football stars Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar Jr, as well as golfers Francesco Molinari and Brooks Koepka are also on the list.
While not transformational, Woods’ win should provide a boost to Nike’s golf apparel business, marketing consultancy firm Metaforce co-founder Allen Adamson said.
“His win is good for golf and it’s good for Nike,” he said.
Endangered Sumatran tiger found dead in trap in Indonesia
A male Sumatran tiger has been found dead in a wire snare trap in a forest area in Siak regency in Indonesia’s western province of Riau, a local authority said on Tuesday.
A rotten pig carcass was found inside the dead tiger’s stomach. The pig was presumably used as bait, according to the Riau Natural Resources Conservation Agency Center (BKSDA).
The agency received a report about the dead tiger on Monday from PT Arara Abadi (AA), a company holding industrial forest permits on the area.
The local conservation agency’s chief Suharyono said the company made the report after being told by a head of a village nearby of the incident.
“The area is the habitat of Sumatran tigers,” Suharyono was quoted by Indonesia’s state news agency Antara as saying on Tuesday.
The agency chief estimated that the male tiger, aged between one and two years old, was ensnared in a trap for about a week, worsening the wounds in the carnivore’s right front leg which most likely led to an infection.
The already critically endangered species also died of dehydration as the water source was far away from the location, he said.
The Sumatran tiger has been listed as a critically endangered species on the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List since 2008.
According to the estimates of Indonesia’s Environment and Forestry Ministry, as of December 2018, the population of Sumatran tigers in the archipelago stands at no more than 600 due to a loss of habitat and poaching.

U.S. Basketball player to play for D’Tigers at 2021 Olympics
Nigerian-American and Brooklyn Nets Guard Spencer Dinwiddie is in the process of acquiring a Nigerian passport to be eligible to play for the D’Tigers at the 2021 Summer Olympics Games.
Dinwiddie appeared to confirm his intention Saturday, writing in response to an online report by The Athletic on Twitter: “Well, now y’all know lol.”
Dinwiddie was born on April 6, 1993 to a Nigerian father Malcolm Dinwiddie.
He played college basketball for the Colorado Buffaloes and earned first-team all-conference honours in the Pac-12 as a sophomore in 2013.
He missed most of his junior year after injuring his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL).
Dinwiddie recovered and was selected by the Detroit Pistons in the second round of the 2014 NBA draft.
After two seasons with the Pistons, he joined the Nets in December 2016. In December 2018 he signed a three-year contract extension with the Nets.
In spite of finishing 10th in All-Star voting for Eastern Conference guards and recording a career-high 41 points in December, Dinwiddie was not on the list of Team USA finalists.
By obtaining a Nigerian passport, Dinwiddie will become eligible to compete with the country in the 2021 Summer Olympics.
D’Tigers team includes NBA players Al-Farouq Aminu, Josh Okogie, Chimezie Metu and former NBA forward Ekpe Udoh.
The current Golden State Warriors assistant coach and former Cleveland Cavaliers and Los Angeles Lakers head coach Mike Brown was hired by the national squad in February.
Nigeria qualified for the 2021 Olympics by being the top-placing African team in the 2019 FIBA World Cup.
NAN reports that when the NBA season was suspended more than a month ago, but Dinwiddie was averaging 20.6 points, 3.5 rebounds and 6.8 assists per game.
He started the season coming off the bench, but Dinwiddie, 27, moved into a starting role when Kyrie Irving suffered a shoulder injury.
Dinwiddie has started 49 of 64 games for Brooklyn this season.

S/Africa’s Tiger Brands looking at sale of processed meats business
South Africa’s Tiger Brands is exploring the sale of its processed meats business, which was temporarily closed last year following the world’s largest ever listeria outbreak, it said on Friday.
The company is facing a class action lawsuit over its role in the incident, in which a listeriosis outbreak that killed more than 200 people in South Africa was traced back to a factory run by Tiger Brands-owned Enterprise Foods.
The country’s leading food producer said its Value Added Meat Products (VAMP) division had been earmarked for review prior to that event, and that the review had concluded it was “not an ideal fit’’ within the portfolio.
Tiger Brands said in a stock market statement that the board had started formal due diligence on Nov. 6 after receiving ““several indicative offers’’.
It will further evaluate its options once this is completed, it said.
The unit’s revenues slid 79 per cent in the six months to end March, prompting an operating loss of 296 million rand (20.05 million dollars) as it struggled to get back up and running following the suspension of its operations. It reopened in December 2018.
The company said the prospective sale of the unit does not affect its commitment to the class action process currently underway.
It added that it had decided to close down its Deli Foods business in Nigeria following a review, as the business continued to incur losses despite efforts from management.
Operations ceased in October and all formalities relating to the closure would be completed in the next few months, it said.

Tiger siblings rescued in Germany relocated to South Africa
The Four Paws animal welfare organisation, said on Thursday that two tigers rescued in Germany have been moved to a sanctuary in South Africa.
The tigers are expected to spend the rest of their lives at the sanctuary because they cannot be released into the wild.
“Sadly, the story of Bela and Sharuk is one of many examples of how the trade in tigers is out of control.’’
“The breeding and trading of tigers is allowed throughout the European Union and in many other countries,’’ it said in a statement.
The tigers were born in 2014 in the garden of a private keeper in Germany, who was forced to give up the animals because minimum prescribed keeping standards were not met, Four Paws said.
Another tiger sibling, Imara, did not survive.
Bela and Sharuk spent more than four years at a sanctuary in Germany before being transferred to the Lionsrock Big Cat Sanctuary in South Africa, even though tigers are not indigenous to Africa.
“A tiger in South Africa may sound strange, but when you know the story of the individual, sometimes it makes perfect sense,’’ said Fiona Miles, the director of Four Paws in South Africa.
“Bela and Sharuk were born in a garden in Germany, a place where tigers clearly do not belong either,’’ she added.
Four Paws has started a petition calling on the European Commission, the EU’s executive, to ban the commercial trade in tigers.
More than 210,000 people had signed it by Thursday.
